Edward Albee Full Length, Drama Characters: 2 male, 4 female Interior Set This Pulitzer Prize winner enjoyed a stunning Broadway revival in 1996 with George Gizzard, Rosemary Harris and Elaine Stritch. 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. Winner of the 1996 Drama Desk and Award, Best Revival. "Powerful...A beautiful play filled with humor and compassion, and touched with poetry...[with] the stature and eloquence of a classic."-New York Daily News "A brilliant play."-New York Post "An evening of theatrical fireworks."-The New York Times
