EDWARD ALBEE & THE EVOLUTION OF EXISTENTIALISM

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, July 9
10:30 am

In Three Tall Women, Albee returns to early themes of his work - the existential alienation of the individual within a failing society – but examines it with the longer perspective of Time. As one of the first modern American dramatists to refract Theatre of the Absurd into American theatre, we can trace how that alienation has continued to manifest in our contemporary digital world. Join Diana Leblanc and others in a discussion about the influence and importance of existential themes in Albee’s work for today’s audiences.
