Fayetteville-based company The Smokehouse Players will perform a new show next week.
The small company that got started a few years ago performing shows in the old Ozark Mountain Smokehouse building at 1725 Smoke House Trail will return with a performance of Edward Albeen’s Tony Award-winning play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf from Nov. 10-12 at the Smokehouse.
From the description of the show:
Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is a scorched-earth masterpiece that savagely exposes dangerous marital dysfunction when two couples in a quiet college town turn a nightcap into an all-out, all-night brawl.
The news show will be directed by Jules Taylor, and stars local players Tim Gilster, Bryan Guarino, Juliette Robinson, and Terry Vaughan.
Tickets to the show are free, though donations will be accepted. All donations received at the Thursday, Nov. 10 performance will benefit Magdalene Serenity House, a local organization that helps to “rebuild the lives of women who have experienced trauma, addiction, and incarceration.” Officials said there are 12 matching donors on board to help in the fundraising efforts.
The show will be staged in the 3/4 round, organizers said, to make the audience feel like they are right in George and Martha’s living room for the all night brawl.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
