It's not very often when you find yourself pleased to be described as full of "aloofness, enablement, self-obsession, co-dependence and cynicism." Or, to have someone described as a "reluctant, caged scorpion with a finely disguised stinger." However, comments like these, along with the many others that have been popping up in the reviews for A Delicate Balance, are the ones that make the thrill of opening night continue on. If you haven't had a chance to read them, and if you're still deciding whether or not to come and see the show, then check out the buzz that has started. We'd also love to hear your own reactions, so feel free to leave a comment!
