Subject: Winding Road presents special VIRGINIA WOOLF Industry Night Performance
THE REVIEWS ARE IN FOR WRTE’S PRODUCTION OF ‘WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?’ AND ONLY 6 PERFORMANCES REMAIN TO CATCH THIS CRITICAL-HIT, INCLUDING A SPECIAL INDUSTRY NIGHT ON MONDAY, APRIL 16 AT 7:30 PM.
“Winding Road's production is led with style, fury and passion by Lesley Abrams...(she) conveyed a real sense of the deep turmoil and sadness that rules her life...Bill Epstein does some of the finest work we've seen from him in his portrayal of George...Erbe's deep understanding of the piece, and of the power of the story, serves the play well...”
-Kathleen Allen, Arizona Daily Star
“Now you can stop avoiding Edward Albee’s game-changing ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,’ thanks to Winding Road Theater. Directed by Terry Erbe, this production mines a laugh-out-loud comedic vein that leavens the overall heaviness of the sprawling, drunken three-hour sparring match.”
-Dave Irwin, Tucson Sentinel
“You can feel every tight jaw and clenched muscle in the ever-taut Winding Road Theater Ensemble production of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” now playing...Lesley Abrams has her inner Elizabeth Taylor cranked up to “11” playing Martha in a performance that perfectly melds her character’s brassy exterior onto her inner frustration...”

Winding Road Theater Ensemble concludes it’s third season with an American classic, Edward Albee’s masterpiece WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? George and Martha are a bitter, older couple coming home from a party at the university where George teaches. They invite a younger couple, Nick and Honey, over to celebrate Nick joining the faculty. As alcohol oils old tensions and new fears, the evening moves excruciatingly into morning as many truths come to light.
WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? is directed by Ensemble member Terry Erbe (Winding Road’s THE LAST FIVE YEARS and TALLEY’S FOLLY -- 2011 MAC Award nominee, Best Director) and featuring Lesley Abrams (Live Theatre Workshop’s THREE VIEWINGS, Winding Road’s THE LION IN WINTER), Bill Epstein (Beowulf Alley’s LEAR) as George and Martha with Ensemble member Amy Erbe (Winding Road’s THE LAST FIVE YEARS and A HUMAN EQUATION) and Robert Anthony Peters (Chicken Lipps’ DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE) as Honey and Nick.
Winding Road Theater Ensemble is a group of artists whose mission is to tell dynamic, theatrical stories that illuminate the human condition and celebrate the theater’s power to entertain us, to move us, and to bring us joy. Inspired by the disparate creative journeys that eventually brought us together, WRTE has a special commitment to developing new work by living American playwrights. We fulfill our mission by producing seasons of contemporary and classic works representing diverse styles, themes, and perspectives; and by presenting readings, workshops, and full productions of new plays.
