The Zoo Story is a one-act dark comedy by American playwright Edward Albee exploring themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication, social disparity and dehumanization in a materialist world.
Peter wants to read on a park bench in peace and quiet. Jerry wants to tell him about his trip to the zoo. From this ordinary encounter, two men become locked in a primal struggle, one that leaves both irrevocably changed. A suspenseful masterpiece, The Zoo Story explores what it means to be alienated from society and from ourselves.
Featuring Christopher Edwards and Beau Jackett, directed by Steve Ross.
