SEASCAPE takes place on a deserted stretch of beach with a retirement aged couple relaxing and conversing idly after a picnic lunch about home, family and their life together. She stretches; he naps. Then suddenly, they are joined by two human-sized sea creatures, a pair of lizards from the depths of the ocean, with whom they engage in a fascinating dialogue. Edward Albee says: "Seascape wonders whether we are an evolving species or perhaps a devolving one. Two lizards; two humans." Edward Albee's second Pulitzer Prize winning play has elements of comedy, fantasy, satire and/or absurdism.
SPTC is calling for 4 actors: two females and 2 males.
Charlie-Nancy's husband, who in his retirement wants to rest and do nothing. Fearful and passive, he is content with the way things are and does not want to be challenged.
Nancy-Charlie's wife, who unlike her husband, is vibrant and curious about the world. She wants to have adventures and is open to what comes her way.
Leslie-the male lizard is more fearful, defensive, and mistrusting than his mate whom he is very protective of. Leslie acts most often on instinct like an animal.
Sarah- mate to Leslie, although cautious, is more curious than Leslie and tries to make a connection. Though Sarah is more deferential than Nancy, she does assert herself to Leslie when an experience is important.
SEASCAPE is the fourth play of SPTC's 5 play Main Stage Season and runs Aug. 30-Oct 6.
The final production, LOST IN YONKERS by Neil Simon, closes the 2019 Season Nov. 8-Dec. 15.
