George and Martha ... sad, sad, sad. No, the Washingtons weren't getting a divorce when Edward Albee unveiled his Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in 1962. It was worse than that, the playwright responded to those baffled by his brilliant, tempestuous drama. America was dysfunctional. Repeated revivals over the past half-century have removed the aura of mystery surrounding George, the underachieving academic, Martha, the unsatisfied wife (also the dean's daughter) and their feckless young guests, Honey and Nick.
