JAMES DOWELL/ JOHN KOLOMVAKIS/THE STAGES OF EDWARD ALBEE

Of the three great American playwrights, O' Neill, Williams and Albee, it is only                     Edward Albee who is living and an active presence in today's theater. Our documentary film will explore the life and work of this major artist and, in addition, offer a view of the                times through which he has lived. We have an extensive interview with Mr. Albee conducted during a session whereJames Dowell paints his portrait outside his house at Montauk, as     well as the playwright giving a view of the studios in Montauk used in the residency              program he sponsors there. We have several interviews conducted in Mr. Albee's loft in      New York surrounded by his art collection. We have been given a group of remarkable        interpretive readings by notable actors from Albee plays; these include Marian Seldes from Three Tall Women,  Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin both from Who's Afraid of Virginia       Woolf? , Bill Pullman from The Zoo Story, Peter and Jerry and The Goat, or Who is        Sylvia?.  Pullman, Seldes, Turner and Irwin were also interviewed about the challenges in    performing Albee, as were the great Anglo-American actress rosemary Harris and Judith      Ivey who has herself performed the role of Martha in Virginia Woolf. The playwrights Tony Kushner, John guare and Terrence McNally were all interviewed regarding Albee's place in the american theater.
