George is a mild-mannered professor and his wife Martha is loud and brazen in Titchfield Festival Theatre’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?

Running from Wednesday until November 30, the play follows the pair who invite a young biology professor named Nick and his wife, Honey over. And then things start to go wrong.

Director Peter Trott says: ‘This is a powerful play—about deep-rooted individual bitterness and its corrosive effects on a relationship, along with the fantasies that we sometimes weave.’
