Yale Rep artistic director James Bundy stages Albee's portrait of a married couple whose golden years are thrown into turmoil. The production will run through Nov. 23 in New Haven, CT.

Chalfant (Angels in America, Passion Play) and Herrmann (Plenty, Mrs. Warren's Profession) lead a cast that also features Kathleen Butler (Three Tall Women), John Carter (Broadway's A Delicate Balance), Ellen McLaughlin (Angels in America) and Keira Naughton (The Rivals).

The creative team includes Chien-Yu Peng (set design), Aaron P. Mastin (costume design), Alan C. Edwards (lighting design) and Sarah Pickett (sound design).

Here's a look at Yale Rep's details on A Delicate Balance: "Friday night in the suburbs. Agnes and Tobias (Chalfant and Herrmann) are a well-off, long-married couple who share their home with Agnes's older sister, Claire (McLaughlin), a self-proclaimed 'drunk.' The delicate balance of their lives has already begun to teeter when their best friends (Butler and Carter) arrive unexpectedly, asking if they can stay—indefinitely. The next day, their grown daughter (Naughton) shows up, expecting to move home again after the collapse of her fourth marriage. Agnes and Tobias soon realize they must make some difficult choices about what to do next."

Yale Rep tickets are available by visiting YaleRep, by calling (203) 432-1234 or by visiting the Yale Rep box office (1120 Chapel Street).
