Tiny Alice: A Play

Edward Albee

Synopsis THE STORY: TINY ALICE begins with a venomous exchange between a lawyer and a cardinal whose contempt for each other careens back to their school days. Eventually, the lawyer offers the cardinal $100 million a year at the request of Miss Alice, the world’s richest woman. Julian, the cardinal’s secretary, is to come to Miss Alice’s castle to complete the details, but while there, Julian falls prey to Miss Alice as she contrives to make him her lover. Through the related transmutations of religious ecstasy and orgasmic pleasure, Julian’s true feelings are terrifyingly revealed, and the stage is set for the electrifying climax of this eloquent, compelling play.
