The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will open its 2016 - 2017 season with a blackbox viewing of the Edward Albee classic The Zoo Story.
Edward Albee (1928-2016) was a major figure and a powerful voice in American Theatre. Three time Pulitzer Prize Winner and two time Tony Award Winner for Best Play, Albee was best known for Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, A Delicate Balance, and The Sandbox. His first produced play, The Zoo Story, won critical acclaim for its devastating look at alienation in modern society.
Edward Albee passed away September 16, 2016. The Lindsey Wilson Theatre Program is honored to produce The Zoo Story in memoriam.
The Zoo Story tells the story of an interesting, even absurd, conversation between strangers Peter and Jerry, as they spend nearly an hour talking on a park bench across from the zoo. Thomas Alvery of Brownsville, KY. plays Peter, a man who looks to have his life together. He has a job, a wife, kids, and a small menagerie of pets. On this particular afternoon, Peter just wants to read his book on his favorite bench in peace and quiet.
Jacob Scott of Brownsville, KY plays Jerry, Peter's opposite. Jerry keeps Peter on the bench, a prisoner of his meandering, often inappropriate, and definitely absurd conversation, giving Peter and the audience a close, personal look at his life, thoughts, and emotions.
Because of the intimate nature of the play, The Zoo Storywill be performed in the Phoenix Theatre (Blackbox) in VP Henry Auditorium.
A blackbox theatre consists of a simple unadorned performance space. Usually a large square room with black walls and a flat floor. The audience sits very close to the action and it allows for a very intimate performance experience.
