Edward Albee's many awards and recognitions--including three Pulitzer Prizes for Drama (a number exceeded only by Eugene O'Neill's four), three Tony Awards, the Gold Medal in Drama by the Academy if Arts and Letters, the Kennedy Center Honors, and the National Medal of the Arts--only confirm his tremendous talents and stature in the arts community.
Albee's oeuvre consists of more than twenty-six plays, the earliest of which were collected in Volume One of his Collected Plays. Volume Two contains the nine plays written by Albee in the period between 1966 and 1977, ranging from the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Delicate Balance to the brilliant and complex short plays Box and Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung to his second Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Seascape, to the controversial Lady from Dubuque (hailed by Time magazine as "a major work...Albee's best since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?")
