Lovesick Sea Play


Anything is possible on the high seas …

On a pirate journey off the coast of South Carolina, the improbable rises from the deep.

With only one woman and a steamer trunk onstage, “Lovesick Sea Play” brings to life an adult romance of religious and political dimensions from 18th c. American history. Billy the Pirate gets chased across the high seas by lovestruck, ingenious Sue. After a violent storm, Billy washes ashore a strange island that contains unexpected treasure. Will the two seafarers find love, or at least learn to love what they find?

This unique blend of radio play-style sound effects, handmade lighting systems, and minimal props invites the audience’s participation in a rich and tumultuous adventure.
