PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING PLAY
BY EDWARD ALBEE
DIRECTED BY NATHAN WINKELSTEIN
From major American playwright and Alley favorite Edward Albee comes a Pulitzer Prize-winning play that tackles two of the playwright’s favorite subjects: marriage and what it means to be human. With his signature wit, Albee introduces a middle-aged couple, Nancy and Charlie, taking a stroll on a deserted beach. Facing retirement, they argue with comfortable familiarity about how to spend the rest of their lives. When a second couple, Sea Creatures Sarah and Leslie, arrives from the depths of the ocean, a pitched encounter, both surreal and profound, ensues. It seems that Sarah and Leslie are also at a turning point in their lives and they are also like no other couple Nancy and Charlie have ever met. A tender and often laugh-out-loud love story, told by way of an unusual marriage counseling session.
Edward Albee’s Seascape is approximately 2 hours long, including one intermission.
Seascape contains brief discussions of Sexual Situations and a short instance of Violence, as well as conversations about suicide and infidelity, as two couples discuss the nature of long-term relationships and of life.
