THE cast of a new production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? coming to Salisbury Playhouse has been revealed.

Pooky Quesnel and Mark Meadows will play Martha and George, the warring couple at the heart of Albee’s black comedy.

Quesnel’s theatre credits include The Suicide for the National Theatre and Romeo & Juliet for Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, but she will also be well-known to audiences for her roles in several television series, including W1A, The A Word and Great Expectations.

Meadows trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and has had an extensive career on stage. He will be most recently known to audiences at Salisbury Playhouse for roles in The Magna Carta Plays, A Man of No Importance and The Spire.

Playing Nick and Honey, the younger couple drawn into Martha and George’s toxic games, will be Joseph Tweedale and Francesca Henry.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a co-production between Tobacco Factory Theatres and Wiltshire Creative. It runs at Salisbury Playhouse from March 26 to April 11.
