Production Description

Casting "The Zoo Story" by Edward Albee. Synopsis: A man sits peacefully reading in the sunlight in Central Park. There enters a second man. He is a young, unkempt, and undisciplined vagrant where the first is neat, ordered, well-to-do and conventional. The vagrant is a soul in torture and rebellion. He longs to communicate so fiercely that he frightens and repels his listener. He is a man drained of all hope who, in his passion for company, seeks to drain his companion. With provocative humor and unrelenting suspense, the young savage slowly, but relentlessly, brings his victim down to his own atavistic level as he relates a story about his visit to the zoo.
