SEASCAPES

3M/1W, Flexible Set, 100 minutes, two acts

Moving and disturbing, this play tells the story of a husband and wife trying to recover from the mysterious disappearance of their son several years before. When an enigmatic young visitor comes to town old questions become new again as the characters attempt to find closure in a world where uncertainties always linger.

“Sometimes bad things happen for reasons no one can explain…but the unsolved mysteries aren’t the crux of the play. Rather they serve as a springboard for the playwright to explore the way we humans cope with the uncertain nature of the world…[Stolowitz] is a writer who seems to dislike taking the easy way out…Seascapes is sure to be one of the most thought provoking plays staged in Roanoke this year.”
– Beth Jones, The Roanoke Times
