A legendary play, forever associated with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton thanks to the film of the same name, is to be staged from December 12 - at the Onassis Stegi as a “living museum” of behaviours from decades past.
"Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf? premiered" in 1962 in New York, where it caused a stir, winning Tony and Drama Critics Circle awards.
In 1966, it was adapted for the cinema by Mike Nickols with a pair of leads legendary both for their performances and their own marital squabbles: Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. The film won two Oscars.
Maria Panourgia directs this classic American work free of illusions. She gives us a ‘stuffed’ bourgeois sitting room full of relics of the past, and leaves the radio on. She’s interested in the morbidity of relationships, but also in the era in which “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?” plays out—an era it encapsulates like a time capsule.
