According to the Tony Award-winning not-for-profit, "On the campus of a small New England college, George and Martha invite a new professor and his wife [Nick and Honey] home for a nightcap. As the cocktails flow, the young couple finds themselves caught in the crossfire of a savage marital war where the combatants attack the self-deceptions they forged for their own survival. Ensemble members Tracy Letts and Amy Morton face off as one of theatre's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee's hilarious and harrowing masterpiece."
