• Albee: After tackling Arthur Miller’s All My Sons in 2008, Deborah Shaw takes on another classic drama. She directs Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? for M & M Productions Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. from Nov. 6 through Nov. 14 at the Bedford Old Town Hall, 3 Meetinghouse Road in Bedford, in association with Bedford Off Broadway.
Shaw won a “best director” New Hampshire Theatre Award for All My Sons, with Milford Area Players. Lead actors from that production, Len Deming and Mari Keegan, play a professor and his wife in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Their cocktail guests, a junior professor and his wife played by William McGregor and Meredith Borgioli, “get sucked into the vortex of the warring duo’s unbounded fury,” according to a press release from M & M.
