National Theatre Live's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) and Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre (CityRep) have again partnered with National Theatre Live! (NTL) to present theater productions to audiences in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater. The next NTL screening is “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Sunday, April 15, 2018, at 6 p.m.

Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton (“Gypsy,” “Vera Drake,” the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (“Game Of Thrones,” “The Producers”), 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”) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, recorded live from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.

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 and his wife 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. 

All NTL events at OCCC are encore presentations pre-recorded in high-definition. The remainder of the 2017-2018 NTL lineup includes:

  • “Yerma,” May 6, 2018

Each showing begins at 6 p.m. in the college’s VPAC Theater. Adult tickets are now available online for $15 at tickets.occc.edu. Children and student tickets are available at the door for $5. For tickets or information visit tickets.occc.edu or call 405-682-7579.
