Each story flows to the next, with a musical quality to the randomness. Albee explains it this way: "Fragments lacks plot in any established sense; there is no clear dilemma and resolution-no 'story,' no apparent sequentially. The piece proceeds as a piece of music does-accumulating, accumulating, following its own logic
Its effectiveness, its coherence reside in what we have experienced from the totality of it. Fragments is also a very simple, straightforward piece-on its own terms, of course"
"Fragments reminds us of Albee's skill at using language to create drama within dramaAlbee's language once again carves eloquent imagesBy the end of these Fragments, Albee achieves a composite of human experience that touches us" ~ TheaterWeek
"This is a play for audiences who like people on bar stools and poems on cuffs. And can remain amused and detached at their own predestined doom" ~ NY Post
