The River City Repertory Theatre has just the ticket for your weekend.

Wednesday, July 3 through Sunday, July 7, the professional team of actors will be putting on the award winning 1962 production Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

Originally scheduled to open Wednesday, the decision was made to reschedule the play in order to make “the production better,” according to a Facebook post.

This play has been performed on Broadway since 1962 and is notorious for winning many awards over the years.

Directed by local theatre veteran Robert Buseick, the play tells the story of a young couple freshly out of college, married, and finally settling down looking to meet some new faces.

“Nick” played by Logan Sledge and “Honey” played by Ellen Lindsay are the young couple invited to have a few drinks over at married couple, George (Patric McWilliams) and Martha’s (Susan Kirton) home.

“It’s a real roller coaster ride — there is a lot of passion and excitement.” Lindsay, of Shreveport, said. “You never know what is going to happen next.”

Although the cast is small, they have performed around the country in various locations.

“This production is a great opportunity for professional actors to go off into big cities and perform while still having the chance to come back and make a living in their hometown.” Mollie Corbett, Marketing Director of Social Media.

“Although the play is older, it is still very relevant to today’s culture.” Lindsay said. “The production examines American culture through this couple’s marriage.”
