Edward Albee, a three-time
Pulitzer Prize winning play­
wright, is coming to CCC to give
a lecture titled “The Playwright
vs. The Theater” and to conduct
two workshops.
Albee is considered by crit­
ics to be “America’s most impor­
tant dramatist still writing,” ac­
cording to biographical informa­
tion received by the college. His
award-winning plays are continu­
ally produced in theaters through­
out the world. He is also gaining
praise for his performances as a
lecturer.
Plays such as Who’s Afraid of
Virginia Woolf? and The Zoo
Story have gained Albee much
praise and recognition. Who’s
Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is per­
haps Albee’s most recognized
work. It is also one of the most
frequently performed plays cre­
ated by an American playwright
in recent years.
In 1966, Albee won his first
Pulitzer Prize for A Delicate Bal­
ance. Seascape won him a sec­
ond Pulitzer in 1975 and in 1994
he won a third for Three Tall
Women.
“It is practically unheard of
for someone to win three Pulitzer
Prizes,” said Diane Averill, an
English instructor at CCC.
Averill also added that this
will be a great opportunity for stu­
dents to hear someone of Albee’s
stature.
“It will be interesting for our
students who are theater majors,
or actors and ac­
tresses, to be ex­
posed to what he
has to say and for
him to shed some
light on the the­
ater,”
said
Averill. “The stu­
dents can get a
chance to see a
very significant
live playwright.”
A critique of
two student-sub­
mitted works will
be given by Albee
in the “Creative
Writing” work­
shop from 11 to
12:30 p.m. on
Feb. 9.
