Episode 003: Edward Albee's Tiny Alice

When first performed on Broadway in 1964, Edward Albee's Tiny Alice frustrated and discomfited audiences with its metaphysical critiques on faith and religion. It is no less opaque today (at least for Craig), and reading rather than seeing it performed certainly makes things more difficult.

The play's density aside, we do manage to discuss cantankerous authors, symbols within symbols, and staging the supernatural.
