    Edward Albee’s penetrating and harrowing exploration of marital strife and truth versus illusion Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? will feature Tina Packer and Nigel Gore as the iconic Martha and George. Directed by Diego Arciniegas, aging history professor George, and his razor-tongued wife Martha, have returned home from another tedious faculty event at a small New England college. But the night is far from over. Martha has invited a young new professor, Nick (Kevin Cain), and his mousey wife, Honey (Angie Jepson) for late-night cocktails and parlor conversation. Pleasantries dissolve as the liquor flows, and the party devolves into an escalating war of words between George and Martha. The young couple is soon drawn into the volcanic battle, exposing dark secrets within their own marriage. By dawn, no one remains unscathed.

      Diego Arciniegas’s clarity of direction unleashes high voltage performances from a cast of four led by Tina Packer, whose Martha (to borrow from Dylan) makes love - and havoc - like a woman but breaks like a little girl. Fortuitously, Arciniegas also assuredly reins in these same actors enough so they stay on track to deliver Edward Albee’s play with all its fierce intelligence and jabbing wit.

      No less lethal now than at its earlier incarnations, including the Broadway premiere in 1962, starring Uta Hagen and Arthur Hill, and the 1966 film with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton as sparring partners, the Publick Theatre production at the Boston Center for the Arts is a reminder that the play is now a classic because of its ability to plow deeply beneath a viewer’s skin.
