Performance Workshop Theatre's SEA MARKS Opens 9/12
Performance Workshop Theatre opens their 2014-2015 season on September 12th with the Baltimore-Washington premiere of Sea Marks, An Irish Love Story by Gardner McKay. Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics' Circle Best Play Award, the production stars Marc Horwitz and Katherine Lyons and is directed by Marlyn G. Robinson.
A rough-hewn fisherman living by the sea on a remote island off the West of Ireland meets a woman from the city of Liverpool. Can the passion that ignites them bring their two worlds together? A play of exuberance, humor, romance and sadness, Sea Marks is not a traditional love story but a story about what motivates people to take great risks in life to find happiness and what it means to belong to a place, to hold a way of life in your heart. "McKay's tender, sometimes brutal, always beautiful language rings with a poignancy unlike anything heard onstage of late." - Theatre Mania
"A masterpiece." - Tribune
