Albee vs Dalby

17" x 11", digital, 2005

Since Krista's a great playwright and Edward Albee's a great playwright and their last names kinda rhyme (and for those reasons alone), I joked for months that they should have a Short Play Showdown: Albee vs Dalby. So I made this for her birthday in 2005.

The "marathon battle...to the death!" begins on June 2nd and culminates with "one survivor" on June 4th, Krista's actual birthday.
By the way, Almost is my absolute favourite of Krista's plays.
Also: the women listed as directors are friends of ours.

The style of this was inspired by old circus posters and other text-heavy posters of the 19th century.
