Sharks and Other Lovers

After eighteen months of being closed to indoor performances, we are delighted to invite the community to enjoy the live indoor production of our 2019 New Play Festival winner and audience favorite, Sharks and Other Lovers by Randall David Cook! This moving comedy takes place on Seabrook Island, South Carolina, a week or so after Labor Day. A bickering, long-married couple, an actress and her writer husband, find their intermittent squabbling interrupted by a psychiatrist who's conducting an exposure therapy session for one of his patients, a librarian who's so afraid of sharks she can't even look at the water without losing control, even with a lifeguard by her side. When the actress decides to go into the water and never return, everyone on the beach that day is forced to face the realities of aging, unrequited love and the fear of being torn to pieces by a thousand jagged teeth (whether literal or figurative). This production is the third installment in our Spring 2021 Prisma Health Fringe Series, generously made possibly by Prisma Health.
