This dazzling work of gut-wrenching dark comedy presents perhaps the most memorable of married couples--George (Mark Shallow) and Martha (Kristi Parker-Barnhart)--in a searing night of dangerous fun and games with Honey (Lauren Omelson) and Nick (Eric Feltes), the pawnlike younger couple, who innocently become their weapons in the savaging of each other and of their life together. By the evening's end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climactic shock of recognition at the bond and bondage of their love. In its superlative construction, in its mastery of razor-honed dialogue and emotional crescendo, and above all in its power to strip away layer after layer of a social pretense to expose the naked nerve of truth, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is one of the most riveting and unforgettable experiences of the American theater.
Albee, Edward. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Published by Signet; Mass Market Paperback edition (1983). Back cover write up.
