Edward Albee. For more than four decades the controversial playwright has shocked and tantalized. From “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” to “The Goat” or “Who is Sylvia”, his plays tackle taboos, from class to sex in its myriad forms. His characters let the emotional and raw humanity hang out in often ugly confrontations. Albee’s work helped transform the stage, poking the public in the gut. And in an age when theatre has been pushed to the sidelines of American culture, Albee still manages to unnerve, to force audiences to examine their own values and tolerances.
Now, with three Pulitzers and several Tony Awards to his name, Albee is at it again with a new play. The American Theatre: looking forward/looking back with Edward Albee.
