The Zoo Story
By Edward Albee | Directed by Owen Duffy | Playing June 9-17
On a Sunday afternoon in Central Park, Jerry and Peter meet. Peter is an upper middle class family man in his early forties, thoroughly domestic in every sense. Jerry is a "permanent transient" in his late thirties who lives in a rooming house on his own.
Jerry strikes up a conversation through questions, interrogating Peter and telling him about his life. Peter is dragged into this rather unwillingly but stays in the park out of choice. The interaction that follows is at times humorous, disturbing, and fateful for both men.
The Head That Wouldn't Die
By Rand Higbee | Directed by Nancy Chastain & Ken Landfield | Playing July 21-29
A madman is on the loose and college student Penny, somewhat flighty, has gotten a gun for protection over the objections of her brainy roommate, Janice. The objections prove all too true when Penny accidentally shoots her boyfriend, Glen. Granted, his sense of humor often makes people want to shoot him, but this was truly an accident.
Fortunately, Janice is a pre-med genius and she is able to use a very unorthodox method to save Glen’s life…kind of. His head at least, but only temporarily. While Glen protests to being stored in the TV cabinet, Penny is concerned that not all of Glen’s body could be saved. After all, what’s a boyfriend without his body parts?
Janice is frantic as to what to do next as the unusual events have attracted the attention of a nosy neighbor and a curious police officer. Janice and Penny try their best to conceal the horrible secret but events soon start to spiral out of control. Janice calls upon her nerdy scientist friend, Luke. Perhaps his newest creation, the B7 robot, can save the situation. But then, what about the werewolf?
