The collected plays of one of the few genuinely great living American dramatists Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner and recipient of three Tony Awards, Edward Albee was awarded the gold Medal in Drama from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1980, and in 1996 he received both the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts. Ben Brantley of the New York Times has described him as 'one of the few genuinely great living American dramatists.' Now, following release of the first volume comes Volume 2 of the three-volume collection of the master's plays. This volume contains the nine plays written by Albee during the period from 1966 through 1977. These range from the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Delicate Balance to the brilliant and complex short plays Box and Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung to his second Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Seascape, to the scintillating one-act comedy Counting the Ways (recently revived off-Broadway to great acclaim), and closing with the controversial Lady from Dubuque (hailed by Time magazine as 'a major work...Albee's best since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?').
Edward Albee received Pulitzer Prizes for A Delicate Balance, Seascape, and Three Tall Women. The Collected Plays of Edward Albee: Volume 1, are available from Duckworth. Edward Albee lives in New York City.
