A Delicate Balance

In 2014, David Selby reunited with his Falcon Crest co-star Susan Sullivan in a production of Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The play was directed by Robin Larsen.

A Delicate Balance premiered in 1966, and Albee received the first of his three Pulitzer Prizes for this play. Upper-middle-class couple Agnes and Tobias and Agnes' sister Claire find their lives disrupted by the arrival of unexpected guests. Susan and David portrayed Agnes and Tobias.

Production photographs from the play are posted on the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Facebook page.

The play opened on May 3 and closed on June 15, 2014.

David and Susan previously appeared together on stage in a performance of A. R. Gurney's Love Letters at the Apollo Theatre in Martinsburg, West Virginia in October 2003.
