Curtain Players welcomes Actors' Theatre of Columbus to present this special readers theatre event featuring a pair of works by American playwright Edward Albee. Curtain time is 8 o'clock each night at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse (Galena OH 43021)

Simply Staged: Albee Fest has each theatre company presenting for audiences a staged reading of an Albee play each night: Seascape from Actors' Theatre on Thursday January 11; and A Delicate Balance from Curtain Players on Saturday January 13.

Jeremy Sony is producing the event. Booth Muller is technical director.

Simply Staged in recent years has featured new works by central Ohio playwrights. This year the Curtain Players annual event is designed to be an opportunity to celebrate the playwright's spirit by reading works from Albee's library. Albee (1928-2016) won three Pulitzer Prizes for Drama and two Best Play Tony Awards during his storied career.

Curtain Players this fall presented Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and the Simply Staged event is designed as a follow-up to that, in a season featuring some of the theatre's most acclaimed playwrights.
