Topeka, Kan. – The Washburn University theatre department will perform “Seascape” by Edward Albee Sept. 7 - 10 in the Andrew J. and Georgia Neese Gray Theatre. The first four shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and the show on Sept. 10 begins at 2:00 p.m. The show costs $8 for general admission. Washburn students, faculty, and staff can attend for free with a current Washburn University ID.
“Seascape” is a two act play about communication and life at a crossroads. Retired couple Nancy and Charlie face the question of what to do with the rest of their lives. The answer seems to be “do something.” The surprise and wonder of meeting two primitive but well-spoken creatures who come from the sea, helps them to remember what is really important in life. Albee, who also wrote the acclaimed play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” was an American playwright in the 20th century. His works often focus on interpersonal relationships and marriage.
“Seascape” is the first of five productions the Washburn University theatre department will perform this year. Shows are performed and directed by Washburn students. Any Washburn student is welcome to audition for theatre productions, shows are not limited to theatre majors only. Visit washburn.edu/theatre for more information on the department and upcoming shows.
