Extracts from Cid (by Corneille), The Learned Women (by Moliere), The Maids by Jean Genet and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (by Edward Albee) and Notes on theatre (by Eugene Ionesco) are contained in the same body of work and
all these passages address the same subject - conflict. According to many critics including Ionesco (who said "Without conflict, there would be no theater") conflict is a necessary part of theatre.

But can we call theater a celebration of conflict and confrontation?

In this essay we will attempt to understand the role of conflict in theater.

The pervasiveness of Conflict:In all the plays, we can see that there is a similar vein that runs through them, the conflict lies between two characters. For example, in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? " Martha and George are husband and wife and the conflict in the play lies between them.Conflict can be an outlet. Some people may deliberately seek conflict with others to vent as this helps some relax.
