Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
    By Edward Albee

    Violent, funny, smart -- and oiled with huge amounts of alcohol:
    Edward Albee's classic portrait of marital war. George, a failed
    academic, and his wife Martha have a young couple over for late
    drinks, and quickly turn the unsuspecting guests into weapons in
    their year-long marriage battle. Layer by layer, drink after drink,
    each gives away the secrets of the other's failed life – neither of
    them capable of stopping the process of mutual humiliation once it
    has begun.

    “Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is one of the strongest, most
    psychologically violent, and yet subtlest pieces in modern theatre.
    It shocks the audience not only by the intensity of its battles, but
    also with the precision with which it presents them a mirror-image of
    their own life. It is a highly entertaining, funny and violent
    description of what it is for people to share each others’ lives, of
    their intimacy, their contempt for each other, and their recognition
    that they will nonetheless carry on together.
