Seaward is an absurdist tragicomedy exploring the issue of identity within the setting of a 1930s asylum for the mentally ill. Long-time F-Ward residents Carrie and Arthur endure various therapies inflicted by their less than empathetic wardens, Cassandra and Adam. When new patient Rick arrives, the strange mix of realities he faces rattle his confidence in his own. What is real and what makes it that way?
Under the guidance and encouragement of UCSB’s Initiative for New & Reimagined Work Founding Director, Vickie Scott, Seaward is a new play that is completely written, directed, acted, designed, and produced by students studying their craft in UCSB’s Theater/Dance Department. For a fully produced, brand new play in downtown Santa Barbara, this is an incredible opportunity that is rarely offered to undergraduates.
