Overview

Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner and recipient of three Tony Awards, Edward Albee was awarded the Gold Medal in Drama from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1980, and in 1996 he received both the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts. Ben Brantley of the New York Times has described him as "one of the few genuinely great living American dramatists."

The first volume of this three-volume collection contains the eight plays written by Albee during his early years as a playwright, from 1958 through 1965. These range from the four brilliant one-act plays with whichhe exploded on the New York theater scene -- The Zoo Story, The Death of Bessie Smith, The Sandbox, and The American Dream -- to his early masterpiece, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Also included are two adaptations from notable American novels -- The Ballad of the Sad Cafe and Malcolm -- and Albee's mysteriously fascinating Tiny Alice.
