The uneasy existence of two suburbanites and their revolving door of houseguests comes to life in the play, A Delicate Balance, presented by the Theatre Department, December 8 through 11 in Watson Arena, located in the Watson Fine Arts building.
A Delicate Balance, which has been referred to as the play about “undefined terror,” is in reality a deeply moving play about fear, loss, and the escape from reality.
The play, student-directed by theatre major Sarah Kaschalk ’17, was written by Edward Albee, the author who gave us Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Zoo Story, and Three Tall Women. It originally premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1967, the first of three that Albee received for his work.
Performances are set for Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m., with a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.
The performances are free of charge and open to the community. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not accepted. For information, contact the Elmira College Theatre Department at 607-735-1981.
