Disappointing, Slow, Excruciating, Dizzying, Confusing

See it if You like listening to the sea waves constantly as that's the bgm

Don't see it if You want to watch some semblance of a play! I didn't get anything out of it other than the premise which I knew before watching it!

“ ‘Sea Creatures’ is head-spinning in many ways and had me thinking about it for hours thereafter, debating hidden meanings...In the play we are told that the sea always has her price. In the case of ‘Sea Creatures’ that price is worth paying.”
