“it’s this understated and authentic air that really makes this production of The Zoo Story shine (not to mention the great performances and direction).” —Amanda Farrel, Monday Magazine
Jerry is a man consumed with loneliness who starts up a conversation with another man, Peter, on a bench in Central Park and eventually forces him to participate in an act of violence. Combining both realistic and absurd elements, The Zoo Story is a short but multi-leveled play dealing with issues of human isolation, loneliness, class differences, and the dangers of inaction within modern society.
