Synopsis: WOOLF opens on 4 actors who are trying to produce A Very Important Play From the Theater Canon (that can fit inside a budget-friendly living room set). After disagreements over character believability and nuance of their Dark Secrets (inevitably revealed in ACT 3), one of the actors decides to quit theater, leaving the production. As the other actors eventually draw her back in, they decide to try and produce a Wildly Producible Modern Adaptation of a Play from The Theater Canon That Can Still Fit In A Living Room. After pursuing a queer adaptation of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” the play splinters again, forcing the actors to rewrite their story and explode the concept of the Living Room Play. WOOLF wrestles with why we make theatre when it hurts so much, how we interact with classic plays, and how to take the audience from consumer to the consumed.
