Edward Franklin Albee III (born March 12, 1928 - died September 16, 2016) was an American playwright probably best known for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962), A Delicate Balance (1966), and more recently The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? (2002). A Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who brought the absurdity of Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco into a stark reality of American theatre in the early 1960s and the decades that followed, Albee is considered one of the leading playwrights of his generation.
