Its 1975 Pulitzer Prize notwithstanding, Seascape isn’t Edward Albee’s most developed work. Still, it breathes with his best obsessions: difference, indifference, and the necessity of full engagement with Being. On a perilously canted seashore sit an older couple (George Grizzard and Frances Sternhagen) who’ve fused comfortably with their existential frustrations. A bracing burst of absurdity puts them nose to nose with another couple (Frederick Weller and Elizabeth Marvel), who’d probably be considered beach people…if they were people. The whole play is a preamble to a human ideal that’s yet to evolve — in other words, an exciting nonevent.
