Til Death

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Ah, marriage-the surest way to eventually destroy a couple. Perhaps we're being a bit cynical. After all, it does work out a little under half the time. But has anyone done any studies on the relative happiness of those "successful" marriages? In Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Mike Nichols directs Elizbaeth Taylor and Richard Burton (actually married to each other . . . at the time) as an aging couple whose only remaining kicks consist of drinking and verbally cutting each other down. George Segal and Sandy Dennis star as Nick and Honey, the young married couple (with the gild still on the lily) who visit their house for a nightcap. As the evening wears on and the abuse grows increasingly less charming, Nick and Honey must face the uncomfortable possibility that they may be glimpsing into their own future. Bring a date!
