Directed by Eilish Moran

Prepare to be captivated by ‘Seascape,’ a mesmerizing theatrical masterpiece by Edward Albee. Set against the stunning backdrop of a tranquil beach, this play explores the complexities of life, love, and evolution. Join Nancy and Charlie, a retired couple seeking solace by the shore, as they navigate the shifting sands of their own relationship. But when they encounter a mysterious and enigmatic duo, their world is forever changed. Secrets, desires, and the mysteries of the deep are unveiled in this thought-provoking and emotionally charged drama. ‘Seascape’ is a journey of self-discovery that will keep you spellbound until the very last wave.

“Hats off, and up in the air! A major dramatic event.” —NY Times. “Not only does this brilliantly original play stimulate you, it also entertains you.” —NY Newsday. “Of all Mr. Albee’s plays, SEASCAPE is the most exquisitely written.” —The New Yorker.
