Photo Flash: Edward Albee's A DELICATE BALANCE

A Delicate Balance is written by Edward Albee and directed by Gary Gisselman

Over the course of a weekend, and with the help of numerous cocktails, Agnes and Tobias try to maintain the "delicate balance" between self-destruction and survival, while providing refuge and a measure of comfort to family and friends in their suburban home. When their adult daughter Julia returns home after her fourth failed marriage, and two friends Harry and Edna move in unexpectedly, many well-masked feelings and opinions are finally vented. Thanks in part to a well-stocked liquor cabinet, and the permanent presence of Agnes's alcoholic sister Claire, sparks fly and the balance of their family life begins to topple.
