Theater of the United States is based in the Westerntradition and did not take on a unique dramatic identityuntil the emergence of Eugene ONeill in the earlytwentieth century, now considered by many to be thefather of American drama. ONeill is a four time winnerof the Pulitzer Prize for drama and the only Americanplaywright to win the Nobel Prize for literature. AfterONeill, American drama came of age and flourishedwith the likes of Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams,Lillian Hellman, William Inge, and Clifford Odetsduring the first half of the twentieth century. After thisfertile period, American theater broke new ground,artistically, with the absurdist forms of Edward Albeein the 1960s.
