Scatologically Speaking

For those of us who might think our own relationships are messed up, Carrollwood Players presents Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — Edward Albee's play about academics, their problems and a full liquor cabinet.

First premiering in the 1960s, Virginia Woolf earned as much controversy as praise. Albee drew back the curtain for what was at the time an unflinchingly honest look at marital dysfunction via the lives of two college professors — one jaded, the other newly hired — and their wives, an emotional sadist and a naïve little lady.

Single folks may leave feeling relieved about their freedom; the rest of us will hopefully walk out feeling comforted about our own relatively normal relationships.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? shows at 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., and 3 p.m. Sun., through March 4, Carrollwood Playhouse, 4333 Gunn Highway, Tampa, $12 adults/$10 students and seniors, 813-265-4000.
