Winner of the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance
is a sharp, witty examination of the limits of our responsibility to family and friends, the difficulty of holding everything together, and how easily it can all fall apart. This classic study of a dysfunctional American family centers on Tobias and Agnes, a long-married suburban couple who, with several bedrooms and a well-stocked liquor cabinet, often provide refuge and a measure of comfort to friends and family. Over the course of two evenings, however, the delicate balance of their existence begins to topple. Agnes' alcoholic sister, Claire, sets up camp in their home. Then their adult daughter comes home after her fourth marriage ends, and lifelong friends Harry and Edna arrive on their doorstep, frightened and seeking sanctuary from an unnamed terror. With a full house, the couple's many well-mannered and well-masked feelings finally erupt.
