Edward Albee’s
Seascape

Directed by Pam MacKinnon
 

January 23–February 17, 2019
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
415 Geary Street, San Francisco


Running Time: TBA


In her A.C.T. debut, Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon continues her career-long exploration of American theater’s legendary playwright, Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?).

In this wildly imaginative and satirical comedy, a newly retired couple picnics on a beach and squabbles about their life together when they are interrupted by two human-sized, English-speaking lizards. Are the newcomers 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. Albee returns to The Geary for the first time in a decade, with a sparkling fantasy of growing up and growing old, fear and adventure, love and laughter.
