Review: Angst, humor and lizards heighten ‘Seascape’ at Role Players Ensemble

By Sam Hurwitt

Seascape 1Two couples meet on a lonely beach. As strangers, they’re wary of each other but also fascinated, and the often difficult conversation they have brings out into the open their deepest insecurities. Oh, and one of the couples happens to be giant lizards from deep beneath the ocean.

For all its weirdness and humor and semi-fantastical premise, it’s a bittersweet piece, tinged with nameless unease and fraught with existential dread. And it’s a wonderfully offbeat and challenging play for a suburban community theater to be doing, which in itself is a fine reason to welcome the lizard people with open arms — even if you have to explain to them what arms are.

Review: Adorable sea creatures in ‘Seascape’

By Sally Hogarty

I never thought I’d go crazy for two large, green creatures that come out of the sea, but that’s what happened when I saw Role Players Ensemble’s production of “Seascape” last weekend.

Well-paced by director George Maguire, “Seascape” features set designer Giulio Perrone’s wonderfully realistic sand dunes with appropriate sea grasses well-lit by Christian Mejia. These, along with sound designer Adam Wayne Gistarb’s ocean and bird noises, transport the audience to an East Coast shoreline. . . . Adding to the impressive scenic designs are the incredible sea creature costumes created by Barbara Bandy-Rosado.

The acting is quite sterling, provocative and revealing. Of course, having director George Maguire at the helm and this pluperfect cast to deliver Albee’s bittersweet words of innocence lost and wisdom examined has to be worth its weight in gold.
