Synopsis "Quentin and his sister Veronica, together with his wife Pat, gather at the beach to scatter their mother's ashes. The act itself is a closure of sorts, but it stirs up conflicts between the three as marital wounds and sibling rivalries are confronted.
Comment "The opening play of By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea, three one act plays melded into one beautiful dramatic piece. Originally presented by the Bay Street Theatre of Sag Harbor, and subsequently presented in New York City by the famed Manhattan Theatre Club.
"'. . . so moving as to cause one to marvel at how the language of theater art can express the accumulated rage, the scarred disclosures-all that is so patly called life's baggage-with the focus and empathy that real life, blindingly defensive, does not allow.' -New York Times
"'Beautifully acted and mounted, sometimes masterfully and always entertainingly written, [this] is one of the must-sees of the summer.'-Southampton Press
"'. . . an evening of thoughtful, provocative plays that share an exploration of relationships, love and lust.'-Newsday"
