A detailed analysis of Edward Albee’s, “The Sandbox,” one of the major American plays of the Theater of the Absurd. The handout examines the plot, the theme, the setting, the conflict, the point of climax, the resolution, and the characters, including the protagonist and the antagonist. Additionally, the symbolism and the Absurdist elements of “The Sandbox” are discussed. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is suitable for a homework assignment or as an in-class activity. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout.
