Considered one of the great works of American theater since winning the Tony Award for Best Play in 1963, Edward Albee’s take-no-prisoners black comedy finds an “intoxicatingly good” (Financial Times) revival at the National Theatre in London.

The play opens in the disorderly living room of a history professor (Conleth Hill, Game of Thrones) and his wife Martha (Imelda Staunton, Harry Potter), who have invited another, younger couple over for drinks and conversation. Soon, however, Martha and George turn to one of their favorite pasttimes: viciously attacking each other’s flaws and failures. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn deeper into George and Martha’s toxic “games” until the “party” reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling. 3h 18m
