Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Sold out even before it opened last year, this critically acclaimed Red Stitch production of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? comes to the Comedy Theatre for a strictly limited season from 29 June.  

Starring stage and screen legend, Logie and AFI Award winner Kat Stewart (Underbelly, Offspring, Disgraced, Heisenberg) and directed by Helpmann Award winner Sarah Goodes (Sunday, The Children, Julia).  

In this jet-black comedy featuring some of the most cracking dialogue and savage one-liners ever written for the stage, real-life couple, Kat Stewart and David Whiteley play Martha and George, whose marriage is served up to their unwitting guests, played by Emily Goddard and Harvey Zielinski, as a taste of the humiliations and the inevitable compromises to come. 

Simply one of the greatest plays ever written, Edward Albee’s classic masterpiece first burst onto the stage in 1962, tapping into a growing unease about notions of decency and respectability, in a vicious dissection of a marriage over years of disappointments. This masterful play is an ode to the heartbreak of middle age.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness this electrifying production.


"You’ll be scorched by its marital savagery, even from the back row. This production deserves to sell out"
The Age

"It is a play of massive personalities, and the wattage emanating from the cast is electrifying."
The Guardian

"The direction is pitch perfect"
Arts Hub 

"Kat Stewart and David Whiteley are unforgettable as Martha and George."
