Vintage Albee - wonderful acting; the dual nature of the sea creatures was especially challenging, and the actors were up to it.
Highly recommended.

A wonderfully presented play in two acts. Actors showed amazing endurance as there are only 4 of them throughout the entire time on stage.

Intruiging and engaging play discovering the aspirations of a middle aged couple juxtaposed with those of two lizards.

Description

On a deserted stretch of beach a middle-aged couple, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talk idly about home, family and their life together. She sketches, he naps, and then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures — lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Initial fear, and then suspicion of each other, are soon replaced by curiosity and, before long, the humans and the lizards (who speak admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue. The lizards, who are at a very advanced stage of evolution, are contemplating the terrifying, yet exciting, possibility of embarking on life out of the water; and the couple, for whom existence has grown flat and routine, holds the answers to their most urgent questions. These answers are given with warmth, humor and poetic eloquence, and with emotional and intellectual reverberations that will linger in the heart and mind long after the play has ended.

Over the years Theatre West's plays have transferred to Broadway (Spoon River Anthology, Aesop in Central Park) and to feature films (A Bronx Tale, Faithful).

The theater is located in Hollywood near the Cahuenga Pass and is home to both professional productions for adults and, since 1984, the family themed Storybook Theatre. No seats are further than 40 feet from the stage.
