You have found yourself at the new theatrical group Different Stages in San Diego County: not to be confused with any other "Different Stages" group in the continental USA. As the name implies we perform at different venues in San Diego County; but we claim The Hall at the historical Swedenborgian Church our home. We present not only thought provoking theatre but also off the wall and over the top that should bring much laughter and discussion!

The Sea Horse By Edward J. Moore
Directed By Mark Robertson
Featuring.... Lucinda Moaney and Brian Burke

This tender, ribald, and complex love story is set in a waterfront bar where seaman Harry Bales spends his shore leave. "The Sea Horse" is run by Gertrude Blum, with whom Harry enjoys a purely physical relationship; they have never shared their private yearnings. Gertrude has encased her heart behind a facade of toughness following a failed marriage. Now Harry has a dream; he wants to buy a charter fishing boat and to have a son. The play progresses through a ritual courtship as these two outwardly abrasive characters fight, make up, fight again, spin dreams, deflate them, make love and reveal their locked up secrets.
