Theater Voices will present a staged reading of “Sea Marks” by Gardner McKay

ALBANY — Theater Voices will present a staged reading of “Sea Marks” by Gardner McKay, directed by John Romeo, on Friday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. All performances are at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany. Admission is free.

In the play, Colm (Mark Brubaker), a fisherman living on a remote Irish island, has fallen in love with a woman he’s glimpsed only once. Unschooled in letter writing, he tries his utmost to court her by

mail and succeeds in arranging a rendezvous. Timothea (Ellen Cribbs), beguiled by his gift of gab, persuades him to come be with her in Liverpool where she toils away at a publisher’s office. Can these mismatched, lonely spirits build a future based upon hope,

desire and poetic words... or is the call of home too great? This lyrical, touching piece won the Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle and the Canadian National Regional Theatre Awards.
