The Zoo Story
Every Animal Has A Story To Tell
1st Stage Presents The Zoo Story by Edward Albee
Its a tranquil Sunday afternoon in New York Citys Central Park. Peter has claimed a park bench and is enjoying the solitude of a good book and his pipethat is, until a stranger declares I've been to the zoo! and asks if hes been walking north. This simple interaction soon becomes something far more consequential in Albees acclaimed play, The Zoo Story.
Returning for its second run, 1st Stages production features Michael Garvey and Terry Loveman portraying two seemingly disparate characters. Peter (Garvey) is a mild-mannered, married, upper-class New Yorker with the stereotypical trappings of success. Jerry (Loveman) is a lonely, underprivileged recluse from the seedy part of town. Though the second act of this play was written in 1958, it is just as timely now in its depiction of social issues and differences, and the struggle for genuine human connection.
The single-day performances will take place on Saturday, March 5th at 12 PM, 3 PM and 6 PM. Tickets are $15 for general admission, and can be purchased online through brownpapertickets.com or at the door. The single-act production lasts 1 hour.
Michael Garvey has been acting in the Washington metropolitan area for decades. He loves having a live audience to entertain and get instantaneous reactions.
Terry Loveman has a background in both acting and improv. He studied most recently at the DC-based Theatre Lab School for the Dramatic Arts.
1st Stage Theater is located at 1524 Spring Hill Road McLean, VA 22102 in the Spring Hill Business Center, accessible by the Metro Silver Line at the Spring Hill stop. All productions are general admission and wheelchair accessible.
