When I started to write the play it cropped up in my mind again. And of course, who's afraid of Virginia Woolf means who's afraid of the big bad wolf . . . who's afraid of living life without false illusions. And it did strike me as being a rather typical, university intellectual joke.- Edward Albee

No, surprisingly. Edward Albee won three Pulitzer Prizes in Drama for A Delicate Balance (1965); Seascape (1975); and Three Tall Women (1994); and was a finalist on at least two other occasions for The Play About the Baby (2001) and The Goat or Who is Sylvia? (2003).

Hamlet....always has been and always will be Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. There is no other play like it. I love Hamlet....and it does not sing to a modern audience the way that Edward Albee does.
