Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
New York: Atheneum, 1962.
New York: Atheneum, 1962. First edition. An exceptional copy in Fine condition. A small bump to the lower edge of the dust jacket spine, otherwise virtually pristine.
A cruel and sensational Tony Award winning theatrical exploration of a marriage, later adapted into an Oscar winning film starring Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton. Albee sets the story after an academic party, and crafts cutting dialogue to reveal the jealousy and tension between a middle-aged couple and their two guests; skewering social expectations along the way. The play was an immense success for its challenging characters and emotional performances, which provided an “electric evening in the theater” (New York Times, 1962). Fine in Fine dust jacket.
