Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?


Two couples and their relationships hit rock bottom. A long, wild, brutal night. Marriage is no longer sacred. A legendary play, forever associated with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton thanks to the film of the same name, is to be staged at the Onassis Stegi as a “living museum” of behaviours from decades past.

Two couples stay up late drinking copious quantities of alcohol. The party begins. Emotions bide their time, ready to set the sanctity of marriage, the very heart of Western civilization, ablaze. Knowledge is used to neutralize—and neuter—the other. In the living room-jungle, they set traps for each other and wait to snare their prey.

Maria Panourgia directs this classic American work free of illusions. She gives us a ‘stuffed’ bourgeois sitting room full of relics of the past, and leaves the radio on. She’s interested in the morbidity of relationships, but also in the era in which “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?” plays out—an era it encapsulates like a time capsule.

And as the murder of a child slowly comes to the surface, Maria Panourgia invites us to view the work with which Albee rocked Sixties’ audiences as a “living museum” of behaviours past.

At weekends 15-16 and 22-23 December 2018 with English surtitles.
