The Zoo Story
The Zoo Story


Theatre - 18 Oct

at Theatre Unreserved


On a lazy Sunday afternoon in New York's Central Park, Peter, a comfortable family man sits on his regular bench for a restful read - that is until Jerry comes along. Funny, magnetic, explosive Jerry. Jerry's just been to the zoo... So?

What unfolds is at turns harrowing and hilarious - a bizarre tale that entraps Peter in the crazed comic nightmare that is Jerry's life.

From the pen of multi-Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Edward Albee, of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf fame, this new theatreWorksWest production stars Patrick O'Reilly and Niall Conway, recent winner of the AIMS award for Best Actor in a supporting role, and is directed by Trisha Kuester.

"The overpowering human need to connect, to make a difference to one another, flows through Edward Albee's The Zoo Story." - Julio Martinez, Variety
