THE ZOO STORY by Edward Albee

                "THE ZOO STORY" by Edward Albee

                 Directed By Lijesh Krishnan

           with Michael French & Francisco Rodriguez

               Shadow Design by Christine Marie

 November 12th - 22nd @ Flight Deck, 1540 Broadway, Oakland

           "Is There A Place For Me In This World?"

Edward Albee's masterwork "The Story Zoo" is on the one hand a brash, bold, heartbreaking story of the price of modernism, and on the other hand a simple tale of one human being trying desperately to connect with another.  

A man sits reading a book on a park bench. It's his bench, his coveted, sunny, Sunday afternoon spot. His name is Peter. He has a wife, two cats, two parakeets, two daughters, more than enough money to live on, and he works at a small publishing house. How do we know all this? Because Jerry, a stranger, penniless, and full of fantastical stories, approaches him and starts a conversation: "I've been to the zoo today," he says, and so begins the wild and shocking tale of "The Zoo Story."

Winner of the Village Voice Obie Award and the Drama Desk Vernon Rice Award, "The Zoo Story" remains as powerful and passionate a play today as it was in 1960.    

This dazzling production by the multimedia theatre company aluminous will be a performance of "The Zoo Story" unlike any other! Once again theatre will show that it is a medium without equal when it comes to expressing the wild and wonderful adventure called the human experience.
