Actress Glenn Close is set to return to the Broadway stage for the first time in 20 years in a revival of Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama A Delicate Balance, alongside John Lithgow.

Close and Lithgow will portray a married couple trying to keep their sanity during a dysfunctional family reunion. Martha Plimpton, Bob Balaban, Clare Higgins and Lindsay Duncan will also star in the play, which will be directed by Tony-award winner Pam MacKinnon.

The production will begin its limited run at the Shubert's Golden Theatre in October (14). A Delicate Balance first hit the stage in 1966 and starred real-life couple Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. Albee picked up the Pulitzer Prize for the drama in 1967.
