Center Stage at SCC presents Edward Albee’s
A Delicate Balance
Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will present Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance from Friday, January 10th through Sunday, January 26th at SCC’s Levitas Center for the Arts.
A Delicate Balance premiered in 1966 and went on to win the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, a Drama Desk Award and three Tony Awards.
In A Delicate Balance, Agnes and Tobias, a wealthy middle-aged couple and Agnes’s witty live-in alcoholic sister have their complacency shattered when longtime friends Harry and Edna appear on their doorstep claiming an encroaching, nameless “fear” has forced them from their own home. They are soon followed by Agnes and Tobias’s bitter 36-year old daughter Julia who returns home following the collapse of her fourth marriage. These events bring a firestorm of doubt, recrimination and ultimately solace, upsetting the “delicate balance” of Agnes and Tobias’s household.
