In a recent article in The Saturday Review. Edward Albee said, “Art is not escape; it is engagement.” Although he was speaking about modern theatre, it applies to the drama of all times. It is difficult to divorce a play from its environment and still expect to receive the total impact it once produced. On the other hand, it is not enough for a play to have relevance to its own time; if our age is not read, it must also speak to our sensibilities.
