Adapted for the screen by 2nd Year Film Student Samuel Irens, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" is a gripping drama that explores the complexities of marriage.
This project - being a faithful adaptation of Edward Albee's ground-breaking theatre-production "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" - aims to bring the drama and barbarity found in the play, to the screen.
Set in the early 1960s on the East Coast of the USA, college-teacher George and his wife Martha invite round a younger-pair (Nick & Honey) for a supposed "after-party". Though, as the night progresses, the bitter and venomous nature of the old-married-couple exposes all sorts of ugliness found within the four.
A truly multifaceted story, the film sheds to light the complexities of marriage via all taking place over the course of one exhilarating yet exhausting evening.
From the creation of the set to the costumes (and everything in-between) the film is to be made by students studying at Bristol-film school "Screenology".
This Cahootify Oppportunity is for the role of "Martha" in the 2021 film-adaptation of Edward Albee's renowned theatre-production - "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf".
Martha is a middle-aged woman who is married to George - the two have been with each other for decades and do nothing but fight and argue.
With quite a loud and brash personality, Martha likes to think that she cares not for the opinion of others. Born underneath a most prestigious individual, she wants to grasp at any shred of authority that she can get.
Beyond her obvious vulgarity and garishness though, lies a vulnerable individual who craves for the affection and validation that has been glaringly scarce throughout her life.
