Further casting announced for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots join the cast of Albee's drama.
Further casting has been announced for the upcoming West End revival of Edward Albee's play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? which runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 22 February 2017, with an official opening on 9 March 2017.
"Albee's play examines the breakdown of the marriage of a middle-aged couple living in American academia, George, an associate history professor and Martha, the daughter of the college president. Late one evening following a university faculty party, they invite a younger couple Nick and Honey to be their guests. They're unwittingly draw into George and Martha's bitter and explosive relationship and watch on as the pair spat and fire verbal abuse at each other throughout the evening. It's a profound and explosive example of theatre of the absurd mixed with powerful realism."
The production is directed by James Macdonald and produced by Sonia Friedman.
Luke Treadaway's stage credits include Saint Joan and the original production of War Horse at the National Theatre. He starred in Piranha Heights by Philip Ridley at the Soho Theatre, and Cradle Me by Simon Vinnicombe, at the Finborough Theatre. He created the role of Christopher Boone in the National's production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, for which he won the Olivier Award for Best Actor.
Imogen Poots' film credits include 'A Late Quartet', 'Greetings from Tim Buckley', 'Filth', 'The Look of Love', 'That Awkward Moment' and 'Need for Speed'. She has also been cast in the adaptation of Jess Walter's novel 'Beautiful Ruins'.
