“A late-night invitation for drinks at George and Martha’s descends into a boozy game of cat and mouse in this raw portrait of a marriage mired in regret and bitterness. A maelstrom of accusation and recrimination, this modern classic is cruelly funny and absolutely compelling.”

The Arts Club’s Artistic Managing Director Bill Millerd says, “When I saw Blackbird Theatre’s production, I knew we had to bring it to the Granville Island Stage and let more people see it. The performances by Gabrielle Rose and Kevin McNulty are brilliant, and John Wright’s production is something that I know people will talk about.” The Blackbird Theatre production went on to be nominated for six Jessie Richardson Awards, winning two.

The ensemble will bring Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to the Granville Island Stage February 10th until March 12th, 2011. Tickets are currently on sale and I also have a pair to give away for the media opening, February 16th. Here’s how you can enter to win:

      My favourite Arts Club show would be Mom’s The Word. As a mom of 2 kids this play had me laughing, crying and wondering how they were able to know my inner most thoughts on being a mother. I’ve seen quite a few shows through The Arts Club (saw It’s A Wonderful Life at Christmas) but this one took the cake for me!
