Michaelmas Week 6
Finding the Sun is three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee's
captivating study of human relationships.
It's a warm sunny day at the beach. Some people sunbathe. Some people play
ball. Two men embrace while their wives aren't looking. A mother muses
about the possibility of seducing her teenage son to a woman she's only
just met. A marriage breaks down. And at least one person dies.
This is a fascinating, funny, and disturbing play, brought to the stage by
the cream of the crop of Cambridge's new theatre talent. The action takes
place in only a few hours of a single day, in a single location, but the
characters' pasts are more than rich enough to keep us entertained: Why did
Cordelia invite a bisexual swinger into her family home? "It was cheaper
than a new playroom."
