Franklin College Theatre Department will present Seascape at 8 p.m. beginning Thursday, Nov. 15 through Saturday, Nov. 17 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. All performances will be in Théâtre Margot in the Johnson Center for Fine Arts, located at the corner of Branigin Blvd. and Grizzly Dr.
In the play, written by Edward Albee, a husband and wife find their picnic lunch on the beach interrupted by the appearance of two sea creatures. The couple’s fear and suspicion give way to fascination, and before long, the four are engaged in a discussion about the meaning and significance of life. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play mixes humor and poetic eloquence as the sea creatures consider life out of the water and the couple considers why their own lives have grown flat and routine.
Nicolas Crisafulli, assistant professor of fine arts and theatre at Franklin College, will direct the play.
Crisafulli earned his bachelor’s degree in theatre arts and political science from Presbyterian College in South Carolina and his master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Memphis. He joined the Franklin College faculty in 2009, after serving as a graduate instructor at the University of Memphis. He is a resident of Franklin.
