The Geneva Theatre Actors Guild brings Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” to the stage March 20 and 22.
The March 20 show begins at 7:30 p.m., and the March 22 performance starts at 10 a.m.
Both performances will be at the Geneva Theater, 244 Broad St., Lake Geneva. First staged in 1962, “Virginia Woolf” examines the complexities of a middle-aged couple’s marriage.
Late one evening, after a university party, the couple receive as guests a younger couple who draw them into a bitter, frustrated relationship. “Virginia Woolf” won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962-63 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play.
In 1966, a film adaptation directed by Mike Nichols starred Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal and Sandy Dennis.
Although there is no ticket charge, the guild suggests patrons give a $10 donation.
Proceeds from the “Virginia Woolf” performances will benefit the Walworth County Literacy Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of literacy needs and equipping adults with necessary skills to lead a productive life.
