The second production of the season is the Pulitzer Prize winning play “Seascape” by Edward Albee. On a deserted stretch of beach a couple, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talk idly about home, family and their life together. She sketches, he naps, and then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Initial fear and then suspicion of each other are soon replaced by curiosity and, before long, the humans and the creatures (who speak admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue. The creatures are contemplating the terrifying, yet exciting, possibility of embarking on life out of the water; and the couple, for whom existence has grown flat and routine, holds the answers to their most urgent questions.
