Talkback Follows Oct 29 'Woolf' Show

Posted: Saturday, October 28, 2017, 5:15am

Curtain Players continues its Curtain Panels audience talkback program following the 2 PM Sunday October 29 performance of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Director Michael Day, the cast, and available creative/technical team members will meet with the audience following the show to discuss the script and the production.

Tickets for Virginia Woolf? October 29 matinee are available on this website. Click here. Performances continue at 8 PM Friday and Saturday November 3-4; and 2 PM Sunday November 5.

In Albee's award-winning iconic play, a middle-aged college professor and his wife invite into their home an unwitting younger couple for drinks after a late-night faculty party. The resulting evening is a wicked jumble of mind games, attempted seductions, and shattering revelations. Due to strong language and adult situations, this show is recommended for mature audiences.

Following one performance in each Curtain Players production’s run — usually the first Sunday matinee — the director, actors, and available designers and technicians gather on stage for a question-and-answer session with the audience. This is an opportunity for an informal conversation about such topics as a play’s subject matter, the challenge of staging the production, a director’s choices and vision, technical and behind-the-scenes design work, and how actors prepare for their roles.

Formally established in 2010, Curtain Panels is one of ongoing initiatives Curtain Players has developed to increase audience appreciation of and engagement in the organization and its productions, and more broadly, with theatre arts no matter the stage.
