This is the first detailed study of one of the most important plays in contemporary theater. In this fascinating look at the modern stage, Stephen Bottoms draws on original archival material and sources including an exclusive interview with Edward Albee. The Introduction considers the text of the play itself; part one provides a survey of the major productions from 1962 to 1999, including the film. Part two examines shifting critical responses to the play and the third and final part offers a detailed examination of five different performances.

Through a detailed reading of five great modern American plays--The Iceman Cometh, A Streetcar Named Desire, Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?--Walter A. Davis calls for a more penetrating look at drama and its psychological impact on the audience.
