Alley Theatre presents Seascape
From major American playwright and Alley favorite Edward Albee comes Seascape, 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.
