About this show

Part domestic drama, part satire, part science fiction and part philosophy debate, Edward Albee's Seascape tells the story of Nancy and Charlie, a troubled, aging American couple facing tensions in their relationship as they contemplate retirement. Their visit to an East Coast beach is enlivened by the unexpected appearance of another couple, Leslie and Sarah, who join them in wide-ranging discussions of trust, communications, human progress, evolution, empathy and more. The perspective of Leslie and Sarah is especially interesting because they are large, scaly, humanoid sea-lizards, highly-evolved and considering a life-altering move from the ocean to the land.
