Stop by for a nightcap!

By Staff | Jan 4, 2013

Come on in and make yourself at home. Have a drink or two.or several! It’s an intense night of drinking, bickering, humor, drama, fun and games – all under one roof – as the Apollo Civic Theatre presents the area premiere of Edward Albee’s 2005 revised edition of his Tony Award-winning play, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

George and Martha have just returned home from a party, when Martha announces she has invited a younger couple to join them for a nightcap. As the night goes on and the liquor flows, the edgy yet sometimes humorous banter takes a serious turn. By dawn, the degrading mess that George and Martha have made of their lives is exposed in this classic play famously made into a 1966 movie starring real-life couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Performances are Jan. 18-20 and 25-27. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 on Sundays. Tickets are available at the door, online at www.apollo-theatre.org or by calling (304)263-6766. The Apollo Civic Theatre is located at 128 E. Martin St., Martinsburg.
