“Of all Mr. Albee’s plays, Seascape is the most exquisitely written.” —The New Yorker

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Seascape brings true eloquence to its compelling yet subtle examination of the very meaning and significance of life itself. Told with Edward Albee’s signature ironic wit and razor sharp perception, Seascape finds Nancy and Charlie, a middle-aged couple, on a deserted stretch of beach, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talking idly about home, family and their life together. Suddenly, they are joined by two lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore… 

SEASCAPE runs September 29-October 23 at the Unicorn Theatre!
