While two of Kevin Spacey’s three new associate directors already have projects assigned to them at the Old Vic – Edward Hall with his two Propeller Shakespeares and Matthew Warchus with a revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s The Norman Conquests (See Today’s News) - Anthony Page won’t be the third man out for long. Page, who hasn’t been an associate at a venue since his time at the Royal Court in the Seventies, explained to Whatsonstage.com that he was persuaded to join Spacey’s team after approaching the Old Vic about staging an Edward Albee play, which they still hope to do. Because of rights issues and availability, Page can’t say yet which Albee play he has in mind. Currently, he has a hit in the West End with his Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin-headed Broadway revival of Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which finishes at the Apollo this weekend before returning Stateside for a regional tour. Last year, Page’s production of Albee’s 1960 one-act two-hander The Zoo Story was expected to inaugurate the West End’s Trafalgar Studio 1, after proving an award-winning success at the Edinburgh Festival. That was called off because, apparently, Albee was writing a prequel (See The Goss, 27 Sep 2005). Perhaps the Old Vic, care of Page, has bagged the rights for the expanded piece?
