Benefit at LongHouse Reserve

Edward Albee, award-winning playwright stepped on stage to give an improvisational performance for the benefit of LongHouse Reserve on July 10, 1999.

A long-time resident, Albee does most of his writing in Montauk where he remains an avid supporter of LongHouse Reserve. In this original performance, Albee used audience suggestions as a point of departure for his dramatic sketches.

Since Albee's first play, "The Zoo Story" premiered in 1959 in Berlin, he has been active in the theatre ever since. His first full-length play "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" has been performed over 600 times. The master playwright has won three Pulitzer Prizes, two Tony's, as well as a Drama Critics Circle Award and an Outer Circle Critics Award.
