Winner of the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance is a sharp, witty examination of a dysfunctional American family. Agnes and Tobias, a long-married suburban couple, find the delicate balance of their existence threatening to topple when they wind up with a house full of uninvited guests, including an alcoholic sister, an adult daughter fresh off her fourth marriage, and two lifelong friends seeking sanctuary from an unnamed terror. Pushed to their breaking point, the couple's many well-mannered and well-masked feelings finally erupt. Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Susan Sullivan (Castle) and David Selby (Dark Shadows) star in this searing work, directed by Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award winner Robin Larsen.

Reviews & Ratings
The “dream team” of Los Angeles Theatre has tapped a young local playwright, Matthew Leavitt, for their next project. Multi-award winners Del Shores, Linda Toliver, Gary Guidinger, and Dámaso Rodriguez are proud to announce the upcoming staging of The Boomerang Effect, a world premiere production.
Del Shores, the Southern-loved writer/director/producer, shares how “it’s exciting to find a new, young voice in theatre. Matthew Leavitt’s new play is that!”
Five bedrooms. Five couples. One chain of well-intentioned disasters in this new comedy that peeks under the covers.
“_The Boomerang Effect _is essentially a fancy academic term for describing cause-and-effect, but what particularly fascinated me about the principle was how various fields of study and professions adopt it in very different ways. The concept of one single principle being utilized so differently by so many different fields made me think about the play’s five couples, and the universal complications in their sexual relationships despite the differences in scenario and detail. But really…it’s a comedy about sex.”
