A DELICATE BALANCE

BY EDWARD ALBEE
A Delicate Balance with Key West Fringe
Fringe’s February performance is A Delicate Balance, the Pulitzer Prize-winning work by Edward Albee.  Described as “a scorching masterpiece . . . very funny and inexplicably moving," it will be presented at the historic Custom House. It is a sharp, witty examination of the limits of our responsibility to family and friends and the difficulty of holding everything together, given how easily it can all fall apart. Dubbed “the pivotal American drama of the second half of the twentieth century."

Location: Custom House, 281 Front Street. (Click here to read a fabulous article by Barbara Bowers, the Key West Citizen, on our collaboration with the historical Custom House.)

The cast includes Richard Grusin, Monnie King, Peter King, Kathy Russ, Tammy Shanley, and Caroline Taylor.

Agnes and her passive husband, Tobias, and Claire, her alcoholic sister, have settled in for a homey evening of genteel sniping in their well-to-do suburban home when they are confronted by invaders. First are their best friends, Harry and Edna, who are seized by a nameless terror and have decided to move in with them. Not far behind is Julia, their daughter, on the run from her fourth marriage. Their life is upended as the dialogue stings and tickles.
