Thank you for the magazine with our interview. It looked (& read) well.

Thank you for your kind pen & best wishes. The interview was held after the Southwest Theatre Conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1977. The interview which we will not quote here, but you can see portions in the scan revolves around Albee's opinions on several playwrights and regional theater and then goes on to discuss his works including "Who'se Afraid of Virginia Woolf", American theater, college theater, several other of his plays and what he was currently working on at the time.... And his working title for the work. Albee has made a number of edits throughout the 5 pages. Edward Franklin Albee III (1928 - 2016) was an American playwright known for works such as The Zoo Story (1958), The Sandbox (1959), Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962), A Delicate Balance (1966), and Three Tall Women (1991).

Three of his plays won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and two of his other works won the Tony Award for Best Play. His works are often considered as frank examinations of the modern condition.

His early works reflect a mastery and Americanization of the Theatre of the Absurd that found its peak in works by European playwrights such as Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco, and Jean Genet. His middle period comprised plays that explored the psychology of maturing, marriage, and sexual relationships. Younger American playwrights, such as Paula Vogel, credit Albee's daring mix of theatricality and biting dialogue with helping to reinvent the post-war American theatre in the early 1960s. Later in his life, Albee continued to experiment in works such as The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?
