"Sea Marks is the story of two people falling in love," press notes state. "Colm is a rough-hewn fisherman, living by the sea, on a remote island off the West of Ireland. Timothea lives in Liverpool where she works in a book publishing house. They meet. Letters follow — letters full of powerful alluring words like she's never heard before Gardner McKay's play beautifully captures the heartache caused by long-distance love when the call of the heart challenges the call of the wild."
Sea Marks will feature set design by Charlie Corcoran, costume design by Leon Dobkowski, lighting design by Michael Gottlieb, sound design by M. Florian Staab and music by Ryan Rumery. Wig design is by Robert Charles Vallance, and properties are by Sven Henry Nelson.
Tickets and more information are available by calling (212) 727-2737 or visiting irishrep.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
