Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Getting Angry, Baby?

Posted in 1 by Editor on February 5, 2009

MARTHA:

“Poor Georgie-Porgie, put-upon pie…Awwwwwwwwwww! Hey! Hey! Hey!

(She sings, to the tune of Mulberry Bush)

Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf, Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf…Ha, ha, ha, HA!

(No reaction)

What’s the matter? Didn’t you think that was funny? I thought it was a scream…You laughed your head off when you heard it at the party.”

 

From Ernest Lehman’s screenplay version (1966) of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962).

    Cool! And here is one bit of coincidence for you.

    It appears that Edward Albee got the idea of the title “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” from a graffiti he saw scrawled in soap on a mirror in a bar one night.

    “I was in there having a beer one night, and I saw ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ scrawled in soap, I suppose, on this mirror. When I started to write the play it cropped up in my mind again.”

    Soap? Migra Ferha? Get it?

    Edward Albee quoted in Flanagan, William (Fall 1966). “The Art of Theater No. Edward Albee” (PDF). The Paris Review 4 (39). http://www.theparisreview.com/media/4350_ALBEE.pdf. Retrieved on 17 June 2008

    Any Blob (Rai Tre) fans out there? You need to have a robust sense of humour and an eye for the absurd to keep your sanity in this island of hypocrites, bigots and self-important village politicians. Keep it up! Someone needs to strip the emperor.

    Blogger Glenn Galea http://inredden.blogspot.com warns former ministers who are now backbenchers and J Pullicino Orland not to “cut of their noses to spite their face”. He suggests that any Nationalist MP not in agreement with the controversial Co-Cathedral project is merely out to rock the boat because she or he is not happy with her his standing in the Gonzi government. If Gonzi’s government had a majority of three, he says, this wouldn’t really matter. But it’s only got a majority of one, he points out. So here’s a guy who is afraid of almost a handful of Nationalist MPs.

    Malta Today on Sunday of yesterday revealed that Gonzi has decided: Richard Cachia Caruana will be EU Commissioner. Does this mean that a potential cause of internal strife has been stifled or, on the contrary, that those PN MPs that do not want RCC to get that plum Brussels job are now left with no choice but to escalate hostilities against the Prime Minister?
