Inveterate guzzlers beware: patrons are being actively discouraged from eating during this production of Edward Albee’s name-making marital-crisis drama of 1962, in order not to put off the actors or distract the audience.
Watching James Macdonald‘s superlative revival (marred only by the cattle-class lack of roaming space at the Harold Pinter theatre), however, you realise that this controversial move is actually a medical necessity. There’s every danger of mid-show scoffers either choking to death as they’re seized by convulsive laughter, or disgorging the contents of their viscerally churned-up stomachs.
“Best Sozzled Acting”: Imogen Poots in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Credit: Johan Persson.
Based on the simple premise of a late-night drinks party that comes to resemble a modern matrimonial equivalent to the flayed-alive horrors of Dante’s Inferno, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is the most wickedly entertaining, most viciously nasty, most incrementally harrowing play in the American canon. And I’ve never yet seen an account of it that ticks all those boxes with such pen-breaking vigour. After a sluggish start to the New Year, it’s as if the West End has been dragged out of hibernation by some blood-stained, howling predator.
Imogen joined Luke Treadaway, Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill for the new production of Pulitzer prize-winner Edward Albee’s play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The play opened on March 9, 2017 at The Harold Pinter Theatre in London, England. We added the first production photos, 2 promotional shoot photos and 3 images from rehearsals to the photogallery. This was Imogen’s stage debut! She looks fantastic as Honey! Take a look!
Imogen attended the press night after party for ‘Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?‘ at 100 Wardour St on March 9, 2017 in London, England. She looked gorgeous! We added 27 high & medium quality photos to the Gallery!
Hey guys! We added all of Imogen’s photos from appearances and candids to the photogallery and we’re now adding all of the photos from movies. It’s been quite some time since we lost our site but we finally added enough photos to the photogallery to officially re-open the site. It’s been hard to gather the photos again as some of them were lost in a PC problem. Unfortunately we also lost the previous domain, we are no longer Imogen-Poots.com, we are now ImogenPoots.org also reachable at Imogen-Poots.org! We love love love Imogen since the first time we saw her, hopefully you’ll enjoy this site as much as we enjoy making it for all of you! We previously added HD Screencaps and posters from Imogen’s first ever movie appearance in V For Vendetta and we have now added 2400+ HD screencaps from the 2007 movie called 28 Weeks Later, where Imogen plays Tammy. This was the first major role for Imogen, she was only 17 during the production and we think she did a tremendous job. It stars the always amazing Robert Carlyle, Rose Byrne and the fierce avenger Jeremy Renner . We also added 3 behind the scenes photos, 40 stills (most of them are HQ and somevery uncommon) and posters. The movie is great, zombies are not our supernatural faves but if you’re into that sort of thing, this movie is very enjoyable.
Would you ask a male actor that?” says Imogen Poots, peering at me suspiciously. I’ve just asked when she realised her looks opened up the board for her in terms of roles. I would, I say – Steve Buscemi is a great actor but he didn’t get to play that many romantic leads. “But he works with Jim Jarmusch all the time,” she responds, “and that’s what every actor wants!”
Poots may not have worked with the celebrated indie director yet but she’s certainly been busy over the past few years, since she made a splash as a teenager enjoying a one-night stand with sexagenarian Michael Douglas in Solitary Man (2009) and was the apple of daddy’s eye in the 2010 ITV remake of Bouquet of Barbed Wire. She went on to play porn baron Paul Raymond’s daughter in The Look of Love in 2013 and an endearing would-be suicide in the Nick Hornby adaptation A Long Way Down the folllowing year.
Since then, she’s mixed critically acclaimed films, such as last year’s violent thriller Green Room, with blockbusters like Need for Speed (2014), and worked with another director that every actor would kill to be cast by, Terrence Malick, on his 2015 film Knight of Cups. That was “wonderful but mad”, she says, recalling the day she thought to ask Malick where her character was from. “He said, ‘Oh well, she’s essentially like smoke; she’s from nowhere and, uh, everywhere’, and I said, ‘Right, OK, great…’.” READ MORE
