About the Play

George and Martha, those arch-monsters of American theatre who have enthralled and appalled audiences for 50 years, return for another bout of marital warfare and 'Get the Guests'.

With all the terrifying fascination of watching a four car pile-up in slow motion, Albee's modern classic plumbs the depths and scales the heights of polite middle-class cruelty with such wit and brilliance it will leave you breathless. In a new Black Swan production, this devastatingly perceptive dissection of marriage, ambition and apathy is reborn for our times and our crimes.

Director Marcelle Schmitz will bring together some of Australia's best performers and designers in a Playhouse season to remember. If you've always wanted to see Edward Albee's classic, don’t miss this chance!
