Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 06 April 2014

This award-winning and hilarious comedy is a breath of fresh air. A semi-autobiographical film-within-a-film, we first meet our protagonist Anna (co-writer/director Anna Margarita Albelo) at her 40th birthday party dressed as a life-sized plush vagina.  Anna has three goals in life; make a feature film, lose 20 pounds and get a girlfriend. She currently has none out of three, and is determined this year to make them happen.

With the help of her friends Penelope (Guinevere Turner, Go Fish, The L Word), Chloe (Carrie Preston, The Good Wife, True Blood) and the super sweet and gorgeous cinematographer Julia (Agnes Olech), Anna embarks on the quest to make an all-female version of the classic Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf and securing her latest muse Katia (Janina Gavankar, True Blood, The L Word) as her girlfriend.

Winner of best comedy at QFest, and outstanding actress for Guinevere Turner at Outfest, this witty and fun coming-of-middle-age film is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

“Films about moviemaking are usually really good or really bad. This one is really, really good.” – Filmmaker Magazine

“You had me at I’m forty and I’m wearing a puffy pink vagina costume.” – Examiner.com

Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf is dark and parodic and exquisitely intelligent at the same time.” – AfterEllen.com
