46_Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

46 WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF ? Edward Albee (USA, 1962)



Class: Theatre History Part II

George and Martha invite a young couple to their house. But as they drink and chat all of George and Martha's family secrets are revealed. The truth is, Martha and George are as remote from the ideal 1950s couple as possible.

This is one of the best plays I've ever read. The dialogues are simply brilliant. The sharp language, the rhythm, the despair, everything is great. And the ending does not disappoint!

4,5/5
