Edward Albee - The Lady from Dubuque

Twenty-seven years after a short run on Broadway, The Lady from Dubuque by Edward Albee is finally getting it's British premiere. In The Telegraph, Jasper Rees talks to the author and the director, Anthony Page.
Such is Albee's abhorrence of directorial egotism, and protectiveness of his own dialogue, that he nurses an ambition to write a short experimental play in which the actors will speak at the behest of an actual conductor.

"If it's written properly, there will be a proper relationship between what is conducted and how the actors naturally speak the lines."
