Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? free pdf "Twelve times a week," answered Uta Hagen, when asked how often she'd like to play Martha in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Like her, neither audiences nor critics could get enough of Edward Albee's masterful play. A dark comedy, it portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games. By the evening's end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. With the play's razor-sharp dialogue and the stripping away of social pretense, "Newsweek" rightly foresaw "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" as "a brilliantly original work of art-an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire [that] will be igniting Broadway for some time to come."
