Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf
I was in there [a saloon in New York] having a beer one night, and I saw "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" scrawled in soap, I suppose, on this mirror. When I started to write the play it cropped up in my mind again. And of course, who's afraid of Virginia Woolf means who's afraid of the big bad wolf ... who's afraid of living life without false illusions. And it did strike me as being a rather typical, university intellectual joke.
