George, a disillusioned academic, and Martha, his caustic wife, have just come home from a faculty party. When a handsome young professor and his mousy wife stop by for a nightcap, an innocent night of fun and games quickly turns dark and dangerous.

Counting the ways and Listening : two plays by Edward Albee ( Book )
8 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Listening. Constructed with the precision of a musical composition, and described by Clive Barnes as "a chamber opera and a symbolic poem about communication," the play juxtaposes three characters - "The Man," "The Woman," and "The Girl" - and sifts through the tangled relationship they have evidently shared. The Man is amiable but distant; The Woman acerbic and bitter; The Girl is perhaps mad - a catatonic who has destroyed her own child. Elliptical in form and redolent with evocative overtones, the play weaves together its strands of conversation and soliloquy into a meaningful pattern of events - underscoring the inescapable fact that while we may listen we do not always hear, and our lives, for better or worse, are shaped accordingly
