About this show

In her American Conservatory Theater debut, artistic director Pam MacKinnon continues her career-long exploration of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). In this wildly imaginative and satirical comedy, a newly retired couple picnic and squabble on a beach about their life together, when they are interrupted by two human-sized, English-speaking lizards. Are these creatures an evolutionary miracle or a threat? And which couple is the greater risk to the other? As the two pairs begin to communicate, they come uneasily together, discovering how transitions in life can spark terror and restlessness in any creature of habit.
