Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (by Edward Albee)

Very late one Saturday night Nick, a new professor at a small college in New England and his wife are invited for a nightcap to another couple’s house: Martha, the college president’s daughter and her husband George, a History professor, are middle aged and married for more than twenty years. Shortly after the young couple arrives, all hell breaks lose... The night turns into a psycho drama, that tears apart both marriages. In three heart-breaking scenes, using dialogue that cuts like a knife, Edward Albee has written a masterpiece. He manages to give a clear-cut, honest picture of the reality of marriage and love, and the fears that go hand in hand with intimacy.
