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.

The idea of the play had intrigued me: a biography of the original bad boy of French literature. However, the play turned out to be really, really badly written. The best within this disaster could have been the recitation of Villon's poetry. But the actor raced through those lines and made them unintelligible.

About the Ticket Supplier: Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival
Padua Playwrights continues a writing, performance, and teaching tradition that began Off Off Broadway and was sustained and refined at the Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival. The Festival prospered on the right balance between teaching a serious writing workshop and the production of a professional festival of new work.Moving indoors, Padua has traded the raw immediacy of site-specific outdoor performances for the focus and finesse of an indoor theater space. Continued, however, is Padua’s exploration of the spoken word and its myriad connections to the possibility of real meaning.
