Book summary

Twelve times a week, answered Uta Hagen when asked how often shed like to play Martha in Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? In the same way, audiences and critics alike could not get enough of Edward Albees masterful play. A dark comedy, it portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games. By the evenings end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. With the plays razor-sharp dialogue and the stripping away of social pretense, Newsweek rightly foresaw Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as a brilliantly original work of artan excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire [that] will be igniting Broadway for some time to come.
