When middle-aged Martha and her husband George are joined by the younger Nick and Honey for late-night drinks after a party, the stage is set for a night of drunken recriminations and revelations. Battle-lines are drawn as Martha and George drag their guests into their own private hell of a marriage.

Middle-aged history professor George, and his wife Martha, are joined by another college couple. The result is an all-night drinking session that erupts into a nightmare of revelations.

    Comments about Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf:

    I probably wouldn't read this book if I wasn't studying it for school.
    Although it was interesting, to understand it fully I may need to re-read it several times.

    "An intensity, a demoniac misery, a ferocious humour...no one can remain indifferent to its power, its resilience of ideas and its range of language" * Sunday Times * "Deliciously toxic, acidly funny" * Washington Post * "There is a great sense of danger in Edward's work, and you never quite know what's going to happen next... I think what is one of the most pronounced ingredients in his work is mischief" -- Harold Pinter "Scorching and exhilarating" * New York Post * "The verbal sparring and violence of Albee's early masterpiece remain astonishing, even frightening, yet bitterly, horribly funny...a classic play" * The Times *
