A chilling 2013 Tony award-winning drama with a devastating deep buried secret.

Lowcountry Today review:

“Edward Albee’s half century old dysfunctional love story ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’ captivates audiences at Footlight Players. Charleston’s oldest theatre company ring in 2015 with an eerie yet compelling depiction of Albee’s 1963 Tony Award winning stage play, examining the frailties of a middle-aged husband and wife caught up in a bitter cat and mouse game all the while deceiving an unwitting younger couple.

Under the brilliant direction of Don Brandeburg four incredibly gifted actors totally immerse themselves in the respective roles.” READ MORE
