FEATURES / CONTAINS

Exterior Set

On a deserted stretch of beach a middle-aged couple, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talk idly about home, family and their life together. She sketches, he naps, and then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures—lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Initial fear, and then suspicion of each other, are soon replaced by curiosity and, before long, the humans and the lizards (who speak admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue. The lizards, who are at a very advanced stage of evolution, are contemplating the terrifying, yet exciting, possibility of embarking on life out of the water; and the couple, for whom existence has grown flat and routine, holds the answers to their most urgent questions. These answers are given with warmth, humor and poetic eloquence, and with emotional and intellectual reverberations that will linger in the heart and mind long after the play has ended.
"Winner of the 1975 Pulitzer Prize. A major work by one of our theatre's most famous and important writers. Critically hailed in its successful Broadway production, the play brings true eloquence, wit and warmth to its compelling yet subtle examination of the very meaning and significance of life itself. "Hats off, and up in the air! A major dramatic event." —NY Times. "Not only does this brilliantly original play stimulate you, it also entertains you." —NY Newsday. "Of all Mr. Albee's plays, SEASCAPE is the most exquisitely written." —The New Yorker.
