I'm working on a paper for school, and I need at least four secondary sources, such as critics or interviews about the play "The Sandbox," by Edward Albee. So far I've been able to find nothing. Any ideas?
No study of a playwright like Albee would be complete without a look at Martin Esslin's book, "The Theatre of the Absurd." It's a seminal work in that area of scholarly study.
Of course, you'll want to look at more recent scholarly publications. Places like JSTOR are a good place to look, especially if your school has subscriptions to scholarly journal databases, which will make things infinitely cheaper (check with your local research librarian; those guys can be life-savers and should be able to tell you what kinds of subscriptions/journals are available). However, a groundbreaking text (in this case, Esslin's) is always a good place to start.
Ah, yes . . . be alone and willing to concentrate (this is for the playwright and not the general theatregoer) on the language of Albee and believe that within the play, in this case "A Delicate Balance," is a masterclass in playwriting and perhaps a lesson in thinking.
As many of you know, I would not be here today -- maybe I'd still be a hairdresser -- were it not for Edward Albee as seen through a young impressionable sailor sitting in the audience of the original production of "Tiny Alice." It was my first transcendental experience.
