Summary
This program looks back and explores the work of Edward Albee, from 1962's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to 1994's Pulitzer Prize - winning drama Three Tall Women. Albee himself talks about the influence of his unusual childhood upon his work, his years in Greenwich Village, and his method of writing. In particular, he discusses a central theme in his work, the essential stripping away of illusion and self-delusion in order to live the extraordinary experience of life to the full. Fellow playwright John Guare and New York Times critic Frank Rich discuss Albee's particular style and legacy. The program also contains extracts from the stage version of Three Tall Women; from the film versions of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, and A Delicate Balance, with Katherine Hepburn; and specially staged readings from A Zoo Story and The American Dream
