Last seen on Broadway in 1974, EDWARD ALBEE'S SEASCAPE won the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This new production marked his return to Lincoln Center Theater where his first Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, A Delicate Balance, won the 1996 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

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.
