    Edward Albee was the target, along with several other Gay playwights, during the 1960′s and into the early 1970′s of campaign against the “queer menace” by homophobic critics who railed about a insidious, perverse “Homosexual conspiracy” against Heterosexuality, Women and the Family. Thus “Homosexual” playwrights were seeking to distort Women, the Family and Heterosexuality by presenting a distorted lying image of same in their plays. And to prevent that “damage” “Homosexual” plays should be exposed to reveal the covert hateful agenda that they had.(snark)

    That this campaign was partly responsible for Edward not getting the Pulitzer Prize for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf is pretty clear.
