ALBEE, Edward

Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf ?

Nick : You ‘re kidding.

Martha : Am I?

Nick : You must be! Him?

Martha : Yep.

Nick : George, sure!

Martha : You don’t believe it.

Nick : Well, of course I do!

Martha: You always deal in appearances?

Nick : Oh, for god’s sake.

Martha : George, who is out somewhere there in the dark. Who is good to me. Whom I revile. Who can keep learning the games we play as quickly as I can change them. Who can make me happy and I do not wish to be happy. Yes, I do wish to be happy. George and Martha - sad, sad, sad.

Nick : Sad.

Martha : Whom I will not forgive for having come to rest, for having seen me and having said: “Yes, this will do ”. Who has made the hideous, the hurting, the insulting mistake of loving … me. And must be punished for it. George and Martha sad, sad, sad .
