About this event

Taking place at in the Drama Room at the WPCC, Smokescreen brings Dubbo residents the opportunity to witness iconic and influential films from the history of cinema.

The theme for 2021 is ‘From the Playwright’s Desk’; films that were originally written for, and presented on the stage. Designed to take place in only a few locations, these ‘limited setting’ films bring the focus on the psychology of the characters. And in their confinement, there is little escape.

Smokescreen - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966)

A bitter, aging couple, aided by the consumption of alcohol, use their young house guests to hurl anguish and emotional insults at each other over the course of a distressing night. 'Old Swampy' and Martha's marriage is showing to be a magnificent wreck as domestic blissfulness is translated to the screen. These characters are working, albeit painfully, through the realities and illusions of their lives.

Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, Sandy Dennis

​Written by Edward Albee and Directed by Mike Nichols

The ticket price includes a complimentary standard drink at the Establishment Bar Dubbo following the film.
