SALISBURY PLAYHOUSE THEATRE TRIP – PROGRAMME

This outing is open to ALL U3A members

WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? – by Edward Albee

Thursday 9th April at 2.15pm

George and Martha invite Nick and Honey to join them for a nightcap. It’s way too late in the evening, but what do they have to lose? By turns brilliantly funny and utterly devastating, you won’t want to look away from Edward Albee’s landmark black comedy, immortalised by the film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Two professors and their wives living the American Dream. Following an innocent invitation after a college campus party, the paper-thin illusion that all is well starts to peel away as George and Martha realise they have a captive audience for their toxic domestic games. As dawn approaches, there is only one way this party can end. And whether they like it or not, everyone must play their part. Pull up a chair and fix yourself a drink.

Cut-off: 9th March

 

HAY FEVER - by Noel Coward

Thursday 14th May at 2.15pm

In deepest Berkshire, retired actress Judith Bliss and her eccentric family have invited guests over for a weekend in the country. But the promise of an idyllic stay is quickly forgotten as the hapless visitors become playthings in the family’s self-made melodrama, resulting in comedic chaos. Cleverly constructed, wittily written and brilliantly entertaining, this is Coward at his best. A sparkling comedy of manners for a summer’s evening.

Cut-off: 14th April
