About

"STUNNING! 
Edward Albee's modern masterpiece gets the superb treatment it deserves. Turner's Martha [is] positively chilling. Irwin takes George to a new level. Albee's zingers have never seemed more lethal. 
NASTY AND HILARIOUS!"
--Peter Marks, The Washington Post   Read the full review

"Turner is first-rate. Irwin is a skilled Albee interpreter."
--The New York Times
