COMING NEXT! EDWARD ALBEE'S
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
'Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.’
Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
Running time: 3 hours, including a 15-min interval and a brief pause between Acts 2 and 3

Though each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.
Venues view the broadcasts ‘as live’ according to their time zone, or at a later date, which is where we come in. The Tanner Humanities Center joined up with National Theatre Live in 2010 and later, in partnership with Salt Lake Film Society. Held monthly at Salt Lake Film Society's Broadway Centre Cinemas in downtown Salt Lake City, we bring the best from London to you.
