A Delicate Balance

by Edward Albee
directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby†

Admission is free. Reservations are required. 7pm in the Jewel Box Theater.

The InspiredBy Series are readings of plays that inspire us to explore and to create, featuring Workshop actors.

Wealthy middle-aged couple Agnes and Tobias have their complacency shattered when Harry and Edna, longtime friends, appear at their doorstep. Claiming an encroaching, nameless “fear” has forced them from their own home, these neighbors bring a firestorm of doubt, recrimination, and ultimately solace, upsetting the “delicate balance” of Agnes and Tobias’ household.
