The Sandbox, a very short one-act play, is written by Edward Albee (1928-2016) who was a particularly skeptical observer of American society and the non-mutual pursuit of the mythical American Dream. It is a play that elucidates an underlying message of elderly care, senility and death. The characters of the play view a personal outlook and each with a role in life.
The study, thus, attempts at uncovering the dehumanized scenes and feelings in various situations are shown in the play through the dialogues among the same members of a family, and the sandbox itself symbolizes Granma's facing of her own children's cruelty and tough dealing that existed during the reign of the flourishing of American Dream and its negative sequences for the modern life in American community. The study starts with an introduction regarding the theory adopted with referring to some significant aspects of Albee's life and contribution to American drama following by the analyses of selected relevant quotes from the play, and it ends up with conclusions and works cited.
