WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Join us for Sea Dog Theater's inaugural production of John Patrick Shanley's critically acclaimed play, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. The setting is a run-down bar in the Bronx, where two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. Both with destructive pasts and previously incapable of genuine relationships, the evening delves deep into the brokenness and beauty of their lives. In the end, there are no easy answers, yet both characters manage to find an exorcism and forgiveness that, while painfully achieved, offers the reconciliatory hope of a future together.
Sea Dog Theater's mission is to tell stories in which the experience of alienation and the struggle for reconciliation intersect. With an emphasis on hospitality and creating an ensemble of artists, Sea Dog Theater produces two full productions each year and monthly reading events. A small reception follows each event.
