YMMV: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Various theories, a popular one is that Martha is the only true person in the play, she's imagining all the others
    • There's evidence that George is gay, having married Martha to try to advance himself. There are subtle moments when it seems George is hitting on Nick.
      • Then again, just about everyone has a moment together at some point.
  • Award Snub: A rare example of it being done after getting awarded: It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, but was revoked by the Moral Guardians on the advisory board.
  • Nightmare Fuel: This first came out during the Cuban Missile Crisis. People expecting to escape from the most terrifying two weeks in history instead found themselves confronted by (then) shocking language and one of the most depressing depictions of marriage ever.
