The Play’s the Thing: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Edward Albee

We’ll be reading Edward Albee’s Tony award winning play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
The language of theater—not in the stagecraft sense, but in the actual dialogue sense—became something new with this lacerating 1962 drama. Two couples at a tiny New England liberal arts college drunkenly go at each other from the wee hours of the morning until almost dawn. Their weapons are their words, and what words they are. Erudition and profanity blend to lyrical heights as secrets, resentments, and even genuine affection are revealed.
