In Edward Albee’s wildly imaginative and satirical comedy, a newly retired couple picnics on a beach and squabbles about their life together when they are interrupted by two human-sized, English-speaking lizards. As the two pairs begin to communicate, they come uneasily together, discovering how transitions in life can spark terror and restlessness in any creature of habit in this sparkling fantasy of growing up and growing old, fear and adventure, love, and laughter. $15–$125, 415-749-2228, act-sf.org
