Called “Captivating” by The Boston Globe, “Albatross is a bold new adaptation of one of the greatest poems ever written; it brings you face to face with the Ancient Mariner, doomed for eternity to retell his harrowing story of an old ship, a voyage to the bottom of the world, and a mystical seabird. It’s a rollicking sea yarn, a fascinating character study, a celebration of storytelling, and a spiritual odyssey into the interconnectedness of all living things. Nominated for three Elliot Norton Awards, including Outstanding New Script, Outstanding Solo Performance, and Outstanding Production.

Produced by Mike Seiden and The Poets’ Theatre and presented by the New Repertory Theatre.
