NOTE - THIS IS A LIVE CINEMA SCREENING BROADCAST FROM LONDON'S HAROLD PINTER THEATRE

National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking initiative to broadcast the best of British theatre to cinemas around the world via satellite. It has been a huge hit in the UK, and will be coming to Selby Town Hall throughout 2017. 

WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?

Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.

In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks.

As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling. 

***** ‘Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.’ The Guardian
***** ‘Conleth Hill is superb. Exquisite.’ Evening Standard
***** ‘Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots are terrific.’ Metro
***** ‘James Macdonald’s blistering production. Intoxicatingly good.’ Financial Times
