About this show

Meet Agnes and Tobias, a retired married couple living in a suburban neighborhood with Claire, Agnes's alcoholic sister. When the couple's adult daughter comes home after her fourth failed marriage and two friends move in unexpectedly, the "delicate balance" of their family life begins to topple. As bitter family rivalries play out over two evenings' cocktails, Albee's sharp and witty dialogue cuts straight to the heart. Agnes and Tobias are challenged to the core in this moving, caustically funny masterpiece hailed as "an evening of theatrical fireworks" by The New York Times. Winner of the 1967 Pulitzer Prize, A Delicate Balance further established Albee as a giant of the American Theater.
