Stage Rights Play of the Week: Albatross

Albatross is riveting. An affecting theatrical piece that you will long remember.” – Broadwayworld

This fast-paced adventure story takes its inspiration from Coleridge’s Mariner, an 18th-century sailor who is cursed with immortality and thrust into the modern world. Written and performed as a rollicking sea yarn, Albatross delivers a profound and relevant message about mindfulness and the effect of our thoughtless actions on all living things. The audience sets sail in a spare but visually thrilling stagecraft, powered by the latest multimedia technology. Immersed in this sensory otherworld, audiences come to find out who the Mariner is, why he must forever tell his story, and what he is searching for as he roams the earth.

by Matthew Spangler and Benjamin Evett

Inspired by "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
