A NEW Irvine-based theatre company is launching with an American epic play, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, in October.

Show-works is to stage the iconic, classic drama at the Harbour Arts Centre on Thursday and Friday, October 10 and 11 with an introductory offer of only a tenner.

Four actors, Drew Cochrane, Pat Nicol, Angie Moir and Stuart McArthur will be the characters in Edward Albee’s ‘Virginia Woolf’ which was an Oscar winning movie starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

Ruairidh Forde, who teaches the youth drama weekly sessions at the Harbour Arts venue, is directing one of his favourite dramas with four experienced actors.

Martha and George are the dysfunctional older couple who ‘entertain’ the new young professor, Nick and his dipsy wife Honey to an evening of fun and games with unpredictable results.

Suitable for age 12 and over, tickets are available at Harbour Arts on 01294 274059.
