Equal parts strange, disturbing, and hilarious, Edward Bond’s The Sea is simply about violence, and where mankind’s violent nature comes from.
In the wake of the tragic drowning of a young man, an English coastal town starts to go mad, with one man claiming there to be a conspiracy brought on by an alien invader.
The end result is a play which deals with grief, xenophobia, and hatred, yet somehow manages to stay hopeful.
Director Bob Smith is honoured to be working in the John J. Conklin Theatre for the first time. His past works have included The Crucible, which he co-directed with Bill Kerr, and Play Strindberg.
