Beowulf Alley Theatre, 11 South 6th Avenue, Downtown Tucson between Broadway and Congress, will open the 2009-2010 main stage season with Seascape by Edward Albee.

A romantic comedy and winner of the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Seascape is the story of a mature, married couple picnicking on a deserted beach, discussing their future together. They encounter a strange and unusual couple also contemplating major life changes. Once the couples recover from mutual surprise and fear, the two couples engage in humorous and sometimes outrageous discussions, sharing thoughts and ideas that lead to hopeful solutions to their future endeavors.
