A Delicate Balance is GTPs upcoming production. Edward Albee's play is set over a weekend at the Hampton home of retired couple Agnes and Tobias. Living with them is Agnes' sister Claire, who likes a drink or three and to irritate her sister. Their friends, Harry and Edna, appear unannounced running from from some unknown terror. Then their daughter Julia returns home from her fourth failed marriage. It's a heady mix and the characters are forced to deal with issues of friendship, family, loyalty and regret.
This play followed Edward Albee's 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' and won him the first of three Pulitzer prizes. Albee died in September 2016, aged 88, and so GTP proudly present A Delicate Balance as a tribute to his immense skill as a playwright.
Our production of A Delicate Balance has a strong cast who are as follows:
Agnes: Paola De Rosa
Tobias: Mark Coleman
Claire: Glynis Poole
Edna: June Stevenson
Harry: Andy Williams
Julia: Melanie Wishart
