With this play Albee inaugurates a series of dramas where the focal point is the internal world of the family, the modern American family, with basic characteristic the fighting of the couple. This war usually fought within the four walls of a lounge is given with many variations and in his later plays. Four people in a fierce battle in their desperate effort for communication, in a cruel and unscrupulous game in order to reveal the truth and the lie. Superficially , this play resembles as a wild marital battle in the traditional line of Strindberg and the last plays of O'Neil. George, failure as a professor, his ambitious woman and the young couple invited in their house are real persons. Their world, depressing and full of disappointments and alcohol, is a completely real world. Although, a more careful examination of the play, links it obviously to the 'Theatre of Absurd'. George and Martha (the aftermath of George and Martha Washington) have an imaginary child, and they behave as if this child really exists, to the moment that in the cold dawn of a wild night they decide to 'kill'' it abandoning their common fantasy. The connection between this imaginary nightmarish child, with the idol of the American young man in the 'American dream'' becomes here explicit and thus in this play there exist dreamy elements as well as elements of allegory (that is the imaginary child that cannot become real for the couple, that totter between the ambition and the lustfulness is, I wonder, something like the ideal of America?). The play is a play of love. 'A love story that reminds us and will always do so that the human nature does not have laws imposed by the others', Andreas Voutsinas the director of the performance says.
