One night a man and woman whose marriage has drifted and who harbor the wife's alcoholic sister from the shocks of a better world receive visits from both their daughter, who is coming home after the wreck of her fourth marriage, and their best friends, a couple who have just had an unnerving experience.

The friends move in and lock the door. Before they leave, everyone faces the same terror; to recognize how they have frittered away love until they are at the delicate balance between sanity and madness.

The themes of loss, fear and escape from reality are explored in this 1967 Pulitzer prize winning play by Edward Albee.
