really liked it

Edward Albee is an actor's playwright because the text really gives the actors a lot of possibilities. Bestiality isn't a common topic, so in terms of how this play was unique, there it is...But beyond "being different" for the sake of being different, it was craftily put together...The only hiccup for me was the son Billy's sudden romantic kiss with the father. I didn't buy it, and it was a wrinkle that really wasn't needed as the whole play was a step over the edge, so why cloud it with believability issues? Still, it had a very memorable ending, and I look forward to seeing it staged sometime.
