Seascape by Edward Albee
Winner of the 1975 Pulitzer Prize. A major work by one of our theatre's most famous and important writers.

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.  Suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures - lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Fear, then suspicion of each other are soon replaced by curiosity.  Before long, the humans and the lizards (speaking admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue.

The lizards are contemplating the terrifying and exciting possibility of embarking on life out of the water.  The humans, 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.
