In his eighth decade alone, Edward Albee, the designated contrarian of the American theater, has thus far been nominated twice for a Pulitzer Prize, had a work about bestiality (The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?) take the Tony Award for Best Play and garnered a Lucille Lorton Award for Best Revival off-Broadway. Not a bad haul for two shows on Broadway and four productions off--and again, that's just since 1998. The critical playwright will deliver the 2005 John W. Harrelson Lecture Monday, March 21 at 3 p.m. in Stewart Theatre at N.C. State University. Admission is free.
