Albee's Everything in the Garden is a superb, if surreal attack on suburban complacency. In the course of an evening's house party, participants are discovered to be engaging in racism, bad business ethics, drunkeness, prostitution, and ultimately, murder.

Everything in the Garden premiered in a Royal Shakespeare Company production at the New Arts Theatre Club, London, on 13 March 1962. The play takes place in the suburban house of Richard and Jenny, (Albee version) with the garden that is seen through a sunroom. Written by. Edward Albee Giles Cooper . 13 March (Albee version). Everything in the Garden premiered in a Royal Shakespeare Company production at the New Arts Theatre Club, London, on 13 March 1962. The Girl Who Came to Supper is a musical with a book by Harry Kurnitz and music and lyrics by Noël Coward, based on Terence Rattigan's 1953 play The Sleeping Prince. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1963. The Philadelphia Story is a 1939 American comic play by Philip Barry.

There is a theme beneath the surface of this play, the corruption of money and the rottenness of a bigoted exurbia where conformity to its illiberal standards and its hypocritical show of respectability is all that counts. The scene is the suburban home of Jenny and Richard. The only thing that seems to stand in the way of their happiness is a lack of money. The action starts in an entertaining comedy-of-manners style. Then, abruptly, there enters a Mrs. Toothe in the menacing and fascinating person of Beatrice Straight who offers Jenny the opportunity to make more money than they have ever had, to buy a greenhouse and all the other luxuries that they require for their garden and their lives. Richard's realization that their newfound money is being earned by his wife's whoring comes almost simultaneously with the return of their 14-year-old son from school and a champagne cocktail party, which they are giving to impress their country club friends. As a result, his horror, disgust and rage has to be kept under wraps in order to keep up essential appearances until tragedy strikes, and Richard realizes that the assembled wives are all involved and their husbands are aware and condoning. More than that, they are prepared not merely to justify but defend the ends through which their means are attained-and the devastated Richard, left in agonized despair by the ironic events which charge the final moments of the play, must face the fact of his own share in their communal guilt.

It's classic Edward Albee play and the characters are rich, tight and wonderful. The plot which could be outrageous somehow becomes something we believe could and does happen.

I loved it and am looking for scenework in this play right now.

Albee's Everything in the Garden is a superb, if surreal attack on suburban complacency. In the course of an evening's house party, participants are discovered to be engaging in racism, bad business ethics, drunkeness, prostitution, and ultimately, murder. Then everyone goes home as if nothing had happened. But something has happened--the central couple, Richard and Jenny, have become financially secure, albeit at a great price. But perhaps they're happier for all this than they have ever been, at the end of a hellish evening in which many of their middle class mores have been abandoned in the name of keeping up with their Long Island neighbors (friends they wouldn't have, by the way, if they were not so well off). The story has absurd plot twists and one or two incredible coincidences, but, accepted on their own terms, these add to the general interest the play's dialogue and plot provide. This play is not performed much now, but it makes for an extraordinarily involving read.
