"Erica Whyman's lethally funny and superbly nuanced revival"
***** The Telegraph

"Albee's marital ding dong, almost 50 years old now, still comes across as ferocious and entirely fresh in Erica Whyman's whip-smart revival."
**** The Times

"The play stands or falls on the performances of the principals, and here we have an exemplary cast."  British Theatre Guide

How far are you prepared to go to hurt the person you love most?

George and Martha are terrific company, magnificent sparring partners and cruel lovers.  So when they invite newlyweds Nick and Honey back for late-night drinks they’re on top form. But as the evening unfolds, the drinks flow faster, and the truth starts to come out, it soon becomes a night none of them will forget.

Set in the early 1960s, with all the stylish sex-appeal of Mad Men and the tension of a Hitchcock thriller, Albee’s explosive play is a ferociously funny and emotionally raw depiction of love and marriage.
