The Sea Plays feature some of Philadelphia’s most respected actors including Keith Conallen, David Blatt, and Brian McCann.
The big news this month is getting Gazela ready for the theater or more appropriately getting her ready to be the theater. This summer, however, the performance will be below decks.
Gazela sets the stage for the Philadelphia Artists’ Collective’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s rarest and earliest plays of loneliness and regret, The Sea Plays: Bound East for Cardiff and In the Zone. Join the crew of the S.S. Glencairn below decks as tensions erupt and every move betrays a thirst for survival.
Presented in affiliation with the Philadelphia Fringe Arts Festival and directed by PAC Co-Founding Artistic Director, Damon Bonetti, The Sea Plays feature some of Philadelphia’s most respected actors including Keith Conallen, Brian McCann, and David Blatt, and showcases the work of photographer David Comdico as part of the PAC’s Resident Artist Program.
The Sea Plays run September 11-23. Running time of the show is 60 minutes. Tickets are $20 ($15 for Students and Seniors) and can be purchased by contacting the Fringe Festival Box Office at (215) 413-1318 or by visiting Sea Play Tickets.
For added authenticity, the cast will be taking Level One Training to help them understand what seafarers do, and to augment our crew each night. More details on the play can be found here. Let your friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. know about this event. It will be really enjoyable entertainment in a unique venue, and the event benefits the guild.
