Most recently the recipient of a 2005 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement, Edward Albee was last represented on Broadway by the acclaimed production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Has there ever been such a surfeit of Pulitzers and Tonys?!
Set on the dunes of a quiet beach, EDWARD ALBEE'S SEASCAPE explores, not uncustomarily, two of his favorite subjects: marriage and relationships. With his signature ironic wit and razor-sharp perception, Albee introduces Nancy and Charlie, a couple facing retirement who argue with comfortable familiarity about how to spend the rest of their lives. Nancy craves new adventure; Charlie really wants just to retire.
When a second couple, Sarah and Leslie arrive on the beach, a pitched encounter, both surreal and profound, ensues. It seems that Sarah and Leslie are also at a turning point in their lives and let it be said they just happen to be very special.
