Yesterday marked the first preview of the 50th anniversary production of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." Starring Tracey Letts and Amy Morton as the play's brandy-guzzling, profanity-spewing couple, the staging will officially premier on October 13th, at New York City's Booth Theatre.
For those not familiar with the Albee original, here's how the 2012 producers summarize the production:
"On the campus of a small New England college, George and Martha invite a new professor and his wife home for a nightcap. As the cocktails flow, the young couple finds themselves caught in the crossfire of a savage marital war where the combatants attack the self-deceptions they forged for their own survival. Steppenwolf ensemble members Tracy Letts and Amy Morton face off as one of theatre's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee's hilarious and harrowing masterpiece."
In honor of the great woman who inspired the play, we've put together a slideshow of memes dedicated to Virginia Woolf. Check out our odes to the female writer in the slideshow below and let us know what witty quips you'd expect Ms. Woolf to say today.
