The Marion Ross Performing Arts Center will host a high-definition broadcast performance of Edward Albee’s play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” by National Theatre Live at 7 p.m. Saturday, according to a press release.

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s project to broadcast the best of British theater live from the London stage to cinemas around the world.

Featuring actors Imelda Staunton (“Harry Potter” films), Conleth Hill (“Game of Thrones”), Luke Treadaway (“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”) and Imogen Poots (“Jane Eyre”), the drama begins in the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college. Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple is drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
