Why See Seascape?
Two Lizards. Two Humans. One Surreal Conversation.
Tony and Obie Award-winning theatre director Pam McKinnon takes the reins with a stunning program of diverse, ground-breaking works during her inaugural season as the brand new ACT artistic director. McKinnon returns to explore the works of the playwright that earned her the 2013 Best Direction Tony, helming Edward Elbee's Pulitzer Prize-winning, surreal masterpiece Seascape, a satirical ode to the grand adventure of life, growing old and facing the fears in between.
Nancy and Charlie, a middle-age couple find themselves on a deserted stretch of beach ruminating about their lives together. On the verge of retirement, they are discussing the problems in their relationship in light of this major life change when two talking lizards named Sarah and Leslie emerge from the waves and strike up a conversation with the couple. These evolutionary phenomenons hold up a bizarre mirror to Nancy and Charlie's interpersonal relationship where animal instincts and human nature collide.

King of the Yees
Delightfully disorderly entertainment, as sprawling and silly as it is unexpectedly moving
This is the kind of artistically electrifying and socially charged musical that will live in your mind and your ears long after the curtain falls.
