Cheap Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf tickets at the Harold Pinter Theatre
Imelda Staunton (Martha) and Conleth Hill (George) star in a new production of multi Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee’s 5-star play: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? directed by James Macdonald.
In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
Imelda Staunton returns to the West End after her Olivier Award-winning performances as Mama Rose in Gypsy and Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd. Her many theatre and film credits include Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance at the Almeida Theatre, her Bafta Award-winning performance in the title role for Vera Drake, and as Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter films.
Conleth Hill is perhaps best known for his role as Lord Varys in the HBO television production Game of Thrones. Conleth’s extensive theatre credits, include Quartermaine’s Terms, The Cherry Orchard at the National Theatre and The Producers for which he won an Olivier Award. Hill also won an Olivier Award and Tony Award nomination for Best Actor for Stones In His Pockets.

Harold Pinter Theatre
The Harold Pinter Theatre is situated on Panton Street in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station. Built in 1881, this 796 seat venue was known as the Comedy Theatre until 2011. Its name change came about by way of tribute to the late great British playwright, many of whose works were staged here.
The first production at the Harold Pinter Theatre was The Mascotee, an Opera Comique, which opened on October 15 1881. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Savages, Talking Heads, Six Degrees of Separation, The Caretaker and Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs.
Today, the Harold Pinter Theatre enjoys consistent success and has established a solid reputation for its diverse repertoire, staging musical comedies, experimental theatre and classic revivals.
Like any long-serving institution it’s had its ups and downs but, in contrast to the massive upheavals experienced by many other West End theatres, the downs have been relatively few. Originally called the Comedy Theatre, it is one of the only remaining theatres in the West End whose interior is mostly unchanged, with only minor alterations carried out over the years. The original Orchestra Pit is still present in the theatre, though very rarely used.
While still trading under the Comedy name, the theatre was closed in 2011 in order to install a new grid and flying equipment. The theatre reopened after a one month closure as the Harold Pinter Theatre, in homage to the great modern playwright who had such a huge impact on British and world drama.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Harold Pinter Theatre make it a brilliant place to see musicals, plays and stand-up comedy. Recent successes include Ibsen’s Ghosts, The Old Masters, Sunset Boulevard, Birdsong, The Children’s Hour, Betrayal, Absent Friends, South Downs and The Browning Version and Spamalot.
Whatever you decide to see at the Harold Pinter Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
