Summary
This program explores the work and life of Edward Albee, from 1962's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" to 1994's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama "Three Tall Women." Albee 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. Fellow playwright John Guare and New York Times critic Frank Rich discuss Albee's particular style and legacy. Includes extracts from the stage version of "Three Tall Women," from the film adaptations of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "A Delicate Balance," and specially staged readings from "A Zoo Story" and "The American Dream."
