Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962) is, without any doubt, one of the most significant American dramas of the 1960s. The fame of Albee's highly controversial play soon reached Spain, for a Spanish version of it was successfully presented in Madrid in 1966. An unexpected consequence of the play's sudden popularity was the influence it exerted on the dramatic works of Spanish playwright Alfonso Paso. This paper studies the way in which Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'s Spanish adaptation was received by theatre audiences and critics as well as its subsequent incidence on Paso's work.
