Volume Title



This project aims to compile existing research on Edward Albee, specifically regarding his three plays The American Dream, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?, and add to the conversation through a number of interviews with young theatre students and professionals. Questions will cover critical theory and opinions, thematic content, and contemporary relevance. The interviews will consist of actors, directors, dramaturgs, and other theatre professionals in order to initiate a multidisciplinary conversation on the texts and on general issues in the theatre. The goal of this project is to create a dramaturgical resource for anyone who has an interest in these plays, either in approaching them for production or for academic study, and to gain new understanding on how Edward Albee fits into a historical and contemporary view of American theatre.
