The Dumbwaiter & The Zoo Story

August 3 - September 3, 2006

Performed at:
The Chopin Studio Theatre

Outstanding Actors 2006: Christopher Prentice as Jerry in The Zoo Story — Mary Shen Barnidge

A pair of relentlessly suspenseful one-acts, The Dumb Waiter and The Zoo Story explore the flipsides of killing time. Premiered in 1960, the plays concern the desperate need to communicate (or not) that drives us to violence and beyond.

Echoes of Waiting for Godot reverberate through The Dumb Waiter as two professional killers pass time waiting for their next macabre assignment.

The Zoo Story depicts a clash of classes as a young vagrant recounts his visit to the zoo to a well-to-do family man and draws the listener into his own primal urges.
