Edward Albee's The Zoo Story | Directed by Owen Duffy
PRESENTED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT WITH DRAMATISTS PLAY SERVICE, INC., NEW YORK
Set in New York's Central Park, The Zoo Story is a confrontation between middle-class America and the outcasts of society.
Peter, an average American, is confronted by Jerry, a lonely man from the wrong side of the park. Jerry tries to teach Peter the realities of life that Peter has tried to ignore. He tries to teach Peter the nature of human existence and relationships.
Through a series of failed conversations and misinterpretations of the act of love, Jerry begins his experiment to see if the middle class Americans are animals after all.
