This edition: Edward Albee, playwright

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 21, 2006.

Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee may seem out of place as a guest on “Women in Theatre” at first glance. Linda Winer immediately casts aside any puzzlement in her introductory description of Albee as the inventor of “some of the most fascinating, complicated, profoundly entertaining women characters ever created by woman or man in this or any other lifetime.” Winer and Albee discuss these characters, most famously Martha from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, but also memorable women's roles in The American Dream, A Delicate Balance, All Over, Seascape, Three Tall Women, Play About the Baby, and The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?
