If you think that Edward Albee's 1963 play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is just about a married couple who drunkenly torment each other in front of their horrified guests, you're only half right.
While discussing the play with actors Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks — who play Honey and Nick, the aforementioned guests — Here TV host Josh Rosenzweig reveals that Albee's cathartic and tumultuous drama is also a scathing, emotional love story about an older couple haunted by the bonds and bondage of marriage.
In the clip below, Coons discusses the backstage rituals that she and Dirks do to aid their onstage chemistry. She also takes a shine to the fact that she's been dubbed the play's best drunk — her parents are quite proud.
