Synopsis:
A social event becomes a personal challenge for two faculty members and thier wives at a small New England college as their inner fears and desires are exposed. Reprint.

Review:
"On the basis of his first four plays one could not really make up one's mind as to the direction in which Albee was headed, although it was clear that he had theatrical talent. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? seems to settle the question: Albee is headed for popular success precisely because of the same unconvincing mixture of lively dialogue and incongruous tricks, of brutal realism and false symbolism, that characterized his first plays...The last play can be best described as running fight between a wife and a husband. Insofar as the play is this, it is indeed successful in its own very limited way. But insofar as it lays claim to some deeper, symbolic meaning, it is pretty near unbearable."

Nicolo Chiaromonte, New York Review of Books, 2/1963

Book Description: Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 180 x 110 mm. Brand New Book. Twelve times a week, answered Uta Hagen, when asked how often she d like to play Martha in Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Like her, audiences and critics alike could not get enough of Edward Albee s masterful play. A dark comedy, it portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games. By the evening s end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. With the play s razor-sharp dialogue and the stripping away of social pretense, Newsweek rightly foresaw Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as a brilliantly original work of art--an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire [that] will be igniting Broadway for some time to come.
