Edward Albee discusses the arts and the meaning of plays

BROADCAST: Dec. 31, 1967 | DURATION: 00:29:15


Every play is political and art isn’t easy, according to Edward Albee. People need to realize that going to the theatre is an arena of engagement rather than one of escapism, says Albee. Due to people’s lack of knowledge and self-awareness, we in society, we deserve everything bad that we get, are also part of Albee’s views.
