A great play by Edward Albee that is unmissable and immortalised as well by Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton on the silver screen. It gives us a sneak peak into one night of a middle aged couple whose marriage is not going well by all means. The alcohol on this particular night does not help either it just inflames the issues at hand. A young couple is invited to their home and I am sure they regretted it the day after and not only because of the hangover.

Quotes: Martha: I swear, if you existed, I’d divorce you.

Nick: Who did the painting?
George: Some Greek with a moustache that Martha attacked one night.

George: You can sit around with the gin running out of your mouth; you can humiliate me; you can tear me to pieces all night, that’s perfectly okay, that’s all right.
Martha: You can stand it!
George: I cannot stand it!
Martha: You can stand it, you married me for it!

George: Martha, in my mind you’re buried in cement right up to the neck. No, up to the nose, it’s much quieter.

Martha: Well, you’re going bald.
George: So are you.
