Then Agnes and Tobias' indignant daughter, Julia, returns to her parents after the collapse of her fourth marriage...For almost 50 years, A Delicate Balance has shone on both screen and stage. It first appeared in 1966, followed by a film adaptation starring Katharine Hepburn in 1973, and a revival in 2011.
