Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake, Harry Potter), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) star in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live from the Harold Pinter Theatre.
In the early hours of the morning on an American college campus, Martha invites a new professor and his wife home for some after-party drinks. Meanwhile her husband George struggles to conceal his displeasure.
As the alcohol flows, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until it climaxes in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
