Edward Albee's award-winning "A Delicate Balance" is being performed on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m. through January 26, 2020 at the Southampton Cultural Center.

2 Joshua Harmon's "Admissions" - Hampton Theatre Company
“Admissions” by Joshua Harmon will be performed by the Hampton Theatre Company at the Quogue Community Hall on Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m.; on Saturday at 8 p.m. and on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. this weekend. Performances continue through February 2, 2020.
In “Admissions,” playing the diversity card cuts both ways in this hilarious and provocative drama that pits a decision by a high school student against the progressive values (and life work) of his parents. Things begin to boil when Charlie claims he is the victim of reverse discrimination--because he is white--after being wait-listed by an Ivy League university.
