An elderly professor, George, and his wife, Martha, invite university newcomer, Nick, and his wife, Honey, to their place for a late night party. As the evening progresses, they find themselves caught up in a marital conflict. Fuelled by alcohol and using language as a weapon, they blemish, hurt, seduce and manipulate, in order to wound their opponents. In the end, mad lies become their only hope. How will this night of torment end? Truth and illusion – can we tell the difference between the two? Do we have the courage to live in a world without illusion, with only our true selves?

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, written by three-time Pulitzer Prize winning American playwright Edward Albee, earned Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Actor and Best Actress. The play was revived on Broadway in 2005 and again in 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of its debut.

Nine Years Theatre is a Singapore Mandarin theatre company co-founded by Mia Chee and Nelson Chia. The company believes in the accumulative process of art, which is reflected in their main goals: the development of their creations, long-term and regular actor training and audience building through the sharing of knowledge. The name “Nine Years” is symbolic of their commitment to evolve and grow year by year.

Originally commissioned by Esplanade for the Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts (2012).
Produced by special arrangement with WILLIAM MORRIS ENDEAVOR ENTERTAINMENT, LLC.

With surtitles in Chinese, Portuguese and English

Duration: approximately 2 hours, no interval
