Agnes and Tobias, a middle aged couple, live in material comfort in the uneasy company of Agnes's booze sodden sister Claire. They are forced to re-examine their values when their flaky daughter returns home after another failed marriage, and their oldest friends arrive in the grip of an unnamed fear, seeking sanctuary.
This is a mordantly witty and often painful play shot through with the quirky and the unexpected. Albee, best known for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, here elegantly balances acerbic humour, an enigmatic sense of menace, and a lyrical mourning of spent passion.
