Format: Paperback
This play, about the questions and answers of human evolution, is fascinating. It won the Pulitzer for a reason, and I highly recommend finding out that reason on your own. It's too bad this play has fallen into obscurity-- I think it is one of the best American dramas thus far. Brilliant. Read (or watch, if you get the chance) this play and shiver.

Format: Paperback
"Seascape" is a literate and eloquent rumination on evolution and the meaning of life. Albee's use of language both impressive and economical. As is his want, the author provokes his audience to challenge prescribed ideology. How rare and refreshing to find an author willing to demand that his audience participate in the theatrical experience by requiring them to question, explore and contemplate.

You'll recognize these characters from other Albee plays. Seascape features sort of a kinder, gentler version of George and Martha, whose bickering words --instead of having resentment under the surface-- reveal love. In the second act, Albee breaks into absurd mode, and they meet some lizard people. You probably won't see this one produced very often outside of big theatre cities or college towns.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Bohdan Hodiak on June 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
I admire Albee's work very much having seen four of his plays. A daring, witty, and interesting playwright. But I can't see what is special in this play. I just saw a well-acted, well-directed performance in a little theater in Lafayette, CO, so the problem for me is the script. Nothing special in the wife wanting adventure in retirement and her husband wanting peace and comfort. Nothing special in the lizards wanting to evolve, bored with their life in the ocean. A positive ending: the human couple will help the lizards evolve and so spark their own life. So?

Simply a masterpiece of American theatre. I don't think this play will ever be revived on Broadway because it really asks the audience to think throught the entire play.
