The City Theatre
Written by American playwright Edward Albee and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The New York Times says "Edward Albee, the leading playwright of his generation, has been confounding, challenging, and stimulating theater audiences for almost half a century." This riveting, funny, and thought-provoking drama weaves the uneasy existence of two suburbanites and their permanent houseguest, a witty alcoholic sister, whose lives are disrupted by the sudden appearance of lifelong friends who ask to stay and escape from an unnamed terror. They soon are followed by the couple's bitter daughter, who returns home following the collapse of her fourth marriage. All of these together bring a firestorm of doubt, allegations, and betrayal upsetting the "delicate balance" of the world they share.
