About the show

Flux Theatre Ensemble presents this world premiere drama, a memory play which explores the legacies of pain and resilience that we inherit, pass on, and sometimes let go. More…

Lynnie is a poet who has lost her creative voice. Now, a mysterious letter asks her to return to her childhood home to reclaim something of her father's. Will it help explain why he gave up music? Will that answer help her write again? And can she ever forgive the betrayal that tore her family apart? 'The Sea Concerto' is a new drama in the spirit of classic memory plays like 'The Glass Menagerie' and 'Side Man.'

Great acting, Absorbing, Slow, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

Ambitious, Insipid, Confusing, Slow

See it if You want to see an attempt that doesn't work. Interesting situation and characters, but poorly written. Another dysfunctional family.

Don't see it if Wait for the next rewrite

Ambitious, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you like a long-winded family drama. The story of a pining daughter for her long-lost father gets lost in the multiple plot lines.

Don't see it if you like a concise, well-crafted story that has a linear plot line. Needs some serious editing.
