Coach House Theatre will stage "Sea Marks" by Gardner McKay, from March 14 through April 7.
In the play, Colm, a fisherman, (Coach House Artistic Director Terry Burgler) living on a remote Irish island falls in love with a woman he's glimpsed only once (Tracee Patterson, who last appeared at Coach House in 2011's "Lettice and Lovage."). Unschooled in letter writing, but with the heart of a poet, he courts her by mail, despite the impossibilities of distance and lifestyle.
Curtain times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Dinner or brunch are available to all theater patrons prior to every performance at the Akron Woman's City Club, next door. Reservations are required, call 330-762-6261.
There will be a special $12 preview performance March 14 at 8 p.m. There are no shows on Easter weekend March 28 through 31.
The official opening night is March 15, with an optional opening night dinner party at the Club prior to the show.
Tickets are $18. The box office opens one hour before the show.
