About Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Audiences at the original Broadway production were keenly aware that they were witnessing the transformation of a promising playwright into a figure of world importance, through a play clearly destined to become a modern classic. Time has richly borne out this view. This dazzling work of gut-wrenching dark comedy presents perhaps the most memorable of married couple – George and Martha – in a searing night of dangerous fun and games with a pawnlike other couple who innocently become their weapons in the savaging of each other and of their life together. By the evening’s end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climactic shock of recognition at the bond and bondage of their love. In its dialogue and emotional crescendo, and above all, in its power to strip away layer after layer of a social pretense to expose the naked nerve of truth, Who’s Afraid Of Virginian Woolf? is one of the most riveting and unforgettable experiences of American theatre.

What the critics said…

“…the most shattering drama I have seen since O’Neill’s Long Days Journey INto Night.  Mr. Albee can without any danger of fulsome exaggeration be placed high among the important dramatists of the contemporary world theatre.”

New York Post

“…a brilliantly original work of art – an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire.”


The experience is irreplaceable. Edward Albee has found fire in the soggy ashes of naturalism and forged a thechnique of inestimable potential. This play is a crucial event in the birth of a contemporary American theatre.”
