He was best known for his first full-length play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962), a Tony Award-winning production which also became a 1966 film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Albee received Pulitzer Prizes for A Delicate Balance (1966), Seascape (1972) and Three Tall Women (1994), among a host of other accolades. The playwright was considered one of the greatest American Playwrights of his generation for his plays including 'The Zoo Story,' 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,' 'A Delicate Balance' and 'Three Tall Women.' Albee died on September 16, 2016 at the age of 88.

History professor George and his boozy wife, Martha, return late one Saturday night from a cocktail party at the home of the college president, Martha's father. Martha Announces that she invited another couple, newly appointed instructor Nick and his timid wife, Honey, over for a nightcap. When the younger couple arrives, the night erupts into a no-holds-barred torrent of marital angst and verbal tirades.
