Sea Marks

When: June 24-27, 8 p.m. and Sun., June 28, 3 p.m. 2009

As we enter the humid days of the Charleston summer, it might help to occasionally imagine faraway places like the lush, green, windswept fields of Ireland. With their latest production Sea Marks, the Footlight Players are offering a chance to make that escape a bit easier. Directed by Ellen Leigh Murray, Sea Marks is a humorous, romantic play about a Liverpool lady and an Irish fisherman. Their chance meeting leads to the question of whether or not two people with such different lifestyles can make a relationship work. According to Murray, “The play is a perfect summer getaway — romantic and satisfying.” The play stars real-life couple Laura Rose and Mark Poremba (who were just married last week!). Before and after the show, soulful Irish music will be performed by Robert Taylor, director of the Charleston Symphony Chorus, and Celtic fiddle player Mary Scott Taylor. There will also be after-parties every night at both Tommy Condon’s Irish Pub and O’Malley’s Bar & Grille. In addition, the Footlight Players and Bocci’s Italian Restaurant are teaming up to offer a three-course dinner/theater package for $38.25 per person. Sounds like a party. —Erica Jackson
