Re: “Sea Marks

You missed it entirely.

As director of the play I had/have complete trust in my actors - so much so that I used the same cast in this production that I used when I originally directed the show 5 years ago. I tusted them to get both Gardinar McKay's and my interpretation of the script across to the audience.

I am sorry if we didn't get your interpretation of the script across to the audience but then again I am the director and I actually read the script.

In the script, Mr. McKay describes "the sea" and "the sky" and "the music" as being characters unto themselves - amost as if this two-hander had a cast of five. He spends almost two full pages describing their abstract importance to the story-line.

The choice of music is to give "the sea" a voice.

The music is also meant to suggest the passing of time. The entire first scene covers 1 and 1/2 years.
The melodic motions of the waves are akin to the ticking of a clock - too much of an artistic reach?

Mr. McKay's intent for the music is to be "slow and contemplative". This script has no dramatic highs - it is a slow disintergration of a relationship - the way the tide slowly erodes the shore.

I think we got it - sorry you didn't. - jfb
