In this dark comedy, Albee presents us with an American family, Mommy, Daddy, and Grandma. The dysfunction between the character is grossly apparent. As a dominating Mommy emasculates the Daddy and the Grandma is packing up so the long feared *van man* can take her away, Mrs. Barker comes to the door but no one really knows why she is there. In the midst of the chaos, the american dream arrives. He is a handsome, beautiful, shell of a man devoid of feeling, life, and anything human. As the soon to be adopted son, he is the perfect replacement for the son that was destroyed in the Mommy's attempt at perfection. He is the perfect package and the promise of long sought after satisfaction.
