What Is A DELICATE BALANCE Like?
The play is deeply relatable and profoundly unsettling. Like the mythological Cassandra, the only character who can often see the truth is the alcoholic Claire, who is considered blind due to her flaws. This is the story of a couple who has lived a long life and has come to the point where they are not quite sure what is left for them, and their friends who come to live with them represent their more pathetic selves, who only know how to cozy up and be frightened of the world. As for the daughter Julia, she feels just as old as her parents with her marriage on the rocks, and all she wants to do is regress to her childhood. Despite these sad elements, the play is uplifting due to its candid depiction of reality.
Is A DELICATE BALANCE Good for Kids?
Due to adult references to alcohol, depression, and minimal violence, the show may be inappropriate for children ages 13 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Glenn Close plays Agnes
John Lithgow plays Tobias

Given the complex structure of Edward Albee's book, Scott Rudin's direct adaptation and Pam MacKinnon's attention to detail, A Delicate Balance is 2 hours and 55 minutes long. This includes two fifteen minute intermissions.
