Delicate Balance, a play by Edward Albee, was first produced on Broadway at the Martin Beck Theatre on September 12, 1966, where it ran a respectable four months and won the author the first of his three Pulitzer Prizes.  The Alban production will be directed by Patrick Felton and will play on April 26, 27, & 28 as well as May 3, 4, & 5.

The story revolves around the household of an old WASP couple (Agnes and Tobias) and the cohabiting Claire (Agnes' hard-drinking sister), who never passes up an opportunity to drink or to make a good joke at someone's expense (including her own). Their uneasy peace is disrupted first by the unexpected arrival of two old friends (Harry and Edna) -- fellow empty-nesters with free-floating anxiety who ask to stay with them to escape an unnamed terror -- and then by the arrival of their daughter Julia, whose fourth marriage has collapsed.

Arti Gras, Art Around Town is an exciting new event that showcases the thriving art and music scene as well as the unique local businesses in St. Albans.  Arti Gras grew from the suggestions of William Gambill, a St. Albans resident and the various ideas gathered from What’s Next St. Albans, a local chapter of the What’s Next WV movement.  WNWV is a series of discussions meant to answer “What’s Next?” for our State. During the St. Albans discussions residents asked for more events to showcase the city’s Outdoor Fun, Artistic Flair, and Hometown Charm.


This free event is brought to you by The City of St. Albans and The St. Albans Area Chamber of Commerce. The first Arti Gras will take place on September 10, 2015 from 5 pm to 8 pm with a Street Party featuring Qiet immediately following at 8pm on Olde Main. Businesses will be opening their doors and letting the art flow in!  Fun for the whole family, there will be activities, music, art and more including Trolley rides around town.
