Edward Albee's Seascape Calendar Notice - May 3 – 25, 2013
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (March 28, 2013) – This May, TheatreWorks New Milford will debut legendary playwright Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, SEASCAPE.
In SEASCAPE, on a deserted beach, a couple talks idly about home, family, and their life together as they near retirement. Then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures who have risked leaving the ocean depths to come ashore. Initial fears and suspicions are soon replaced by curiosity. Before long, the humans and the creatures are engaged in a funny, fascinating dialogue. As the creatures face the terrifying prospect of life ashore, the humans are forced to contemplate their own emotional and mortal realities. Albee's play is filled with warmth, humor, poetic eloquence, along with emotional and intellectual reverberations that will linger in the heart and mind long after the play has ended.
SEASCAPE is under the direction of Chesley Plemmons of Sherman.
The production features four of the region's finest actors: Noel Desiato (Sherman), J. Scott Williams (Brookfield), James Hipp (Danbury), and Desirae Carle (New Milford).
