is one of the most popular plays by an American playwright, ranked with any by Arthur Miller, Eugene O'Neill, or Tennessee Williams.
If Arsenic and Old Lace is playing somewhere in the world today, so, too, must Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? be on the boards.
Edward Albee has produced his own version in Manhattan with a text revised to the standards contemporary with the production date. While all rights for productions in the New York City metropolitain area remain with Mr. Albee, it is produced elsewhere over the continent and throughout the world.
In one year, a production was noted for Ketchum/Sun Valley, Idaho, another was scheduled to be by Patrick Stewart, a.k.a. John-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise (Sadly, it did not come about. Another director, who missed the religious overtones of the play, directed this London production with Diana Rigg. It missed too much of what the drama is about, despite Ms. Rigg's presence.)
This site is William Allin Storrer's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? site. Originally it contained the full text of Dr. Storrer's Dissertation of the play.
