Product Description

This title is exclusively available from Vintage ClassicsNational Curriculum set textForty-five years after its original production, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? was staged to critical acclaim at the Apollo Theatre, London in 2006 starring Kathleen Turner as MarthaCharles Bukowski's favourite film was the 1966 version of the play starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Every credited member of the cast received an Academy Award nomination. The only film in Academy history to be nominated in every eligible categoryWon the 1963 Tony Award for best playEdward Albee ranks alongside Eugene O'Neill, Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller as one of the best playwrights America has producedAlbee's play The Lady from Dubuque was recently revived on the London stage starring Maggie SmithAlbee is often referred to as America's greatest living playwrightEdward Albee was born on 12th March 1928. He was adopted by Reed and Frances Albee at the age of eighteen days. Reed Albee was the heir to a vaudeville empire. In 1949 he moved to Greenwich Village and became involved in the artistic scene there. He has received three Pulitzer prizes for drama and in 2005 received a special Tony Lifetime Achievement Award.When middle-aged Martha and her husband George are joined by the younger Nick and Honey for late-night drinks after a party, the stage is set for a night of drunken recriminations and revelations. Battle-lines are drawn as Martha and George drag their guests into their own private hell of a marriage.An intensity, a demoniac misery, a ferocious humour...no one can remain indifferent to its power, its resilience of ideas and its range of languageDeliciously toxic, acidly funnyThere is a great sense of danger in Edward's work, and you never quite know what's going to happen next... I think what is one of the most pronounced ingredients in his work is mischiefScorching and exhilaratingThe verbal sparring and violence of Albee's early masterpiece remain astonishing, even frightening, yet bitterly, horribly funny...a classic play
