Edward Albee’s Seascape – The Belknap Mill
December 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
After a successful launch of the inaugural Playreading Series at the Belknap Mill in September, Theatrical Artists-in-Residence Bryan and Johanna Halperin will be back presenting Edward Albee’s 1975 Pulitzer Prize winning play Seascape. There will be two performances, Friday December 6 at 7 pm and Sunday December 8 at 2 pm. Both performances will be followed by talkbacks with the audience.
For similar reasons as to their choice of An Enemy of the People for the first reading, the Halperins have chosen Seascape for its relevance to the Lakes Region community. According to Bryan, “Seascape is about evolution. On a micro level, the drama comes from an older retired couple trying to figure out the next phase of their lives as both a couple and as individual human beings once they are unburdened by kids and jobs. And on a macro level, it’s also an absurdist comedy about two human-sized lizards making their way from ocean to land to decide what the next phase of their lives will be! Yes, human-sized lizards. With the demographics of the Lakes Region, and New Hampshire as a whole, trending older, a play about aging seems particularly relevant to the community.”
