Edward Albee’s Seascape is a slight comedy about neurotic baby boomers on an anonymous beach. Nancy (Susan Bowen Powers) wants to travel the world; Charlie (Ed Shea) does not. They’re both rather annoying. There’s the roar of low-flying airplanes and a suggestion that the couple is actually dead. The play perks up considerably once they receive an unexpected visit from a couple of velvety sea reptiles, and the play’s second act deals with the two couples trying to figure each other out. It’s a strange little play – it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1975 – but ultimately it’s not quite strange enough.
The play is performed twice on Sundays, at 2pm and 7:30pm.
