    A powerful and unsettling story of loss, pain, marriage, and desperation.

    Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is a read like no other. An over-the-top drama about the many demons of our past that we have swiped under the rug and how they explode onto the surface. Here are the indelible George and Martha, a couple torn apart by years of hatred, desire, sexual frustration, and malice. They take in another couple, Nick and Honey who become there pawns in George and Martha's belittling and embarrassment of each other. The agony, and unbearable misery that these four main characters face in there quest for deliverance is what makes this play a mesmerizing and at times disturbing view of marriage and the threat of divorce.

    Correction

    The play takes place in New Carthage not New England. New Carthage is representative of Babylon and hence history. Thank you.

    Greatest Play Ever Written

    Albee's 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' is, in my opinion, the greatest play ever written. The characters of George and Martha are so insane, rude, and almost sleazy that they are practically embarassing their guests. You can tell that George wants to impress Nick and Honey but can't hold back from fighting with Martha. You can tell that Nick is embarassed to be around these people and that he can't help but show the embarassment and hold back the anger. And you can tell that Honey is just sickened by these people at some points and she adores them at other points. Albee's genious is shown here, especially with the 'Humiliate the Host' and 'Get the Guests' scenes and all of George and Martha's monologues. As an actor, I would love to play Nick or George on stage. Preferably Nick.

    FOR THE BORDERLINE INSANE

    be a first-hand witness to the diminishing of the final strands of sanity a new england couple of middle-aged alcoholics has holding their tired, fabricated lives together. this account of a late-night meeting between four flawed but intriguing characters will leave the reader naked with the equatable guilt of a witness to a rape. leave all of your preconcieved notions of what pain is behind. this is truly a portrait of humilliation and broken dreams.
