Description

Coming this Fall 2017 to Pioneer Park in Mission Hills will be a site-specific presentation of The Zoo Story by four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Edward Albee. The play takes place on a sunny Sunday afternoon on a park bench in Central Park.

SDAT’s production will take place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons in Mission Hills at the charming Pioneer Park with Fred Harlow as Peter and Byron LaDue as Jerry and directed by Patricia Elmore Costa.

Edward Albee and his play, The Zoo Story written in 1958 achieved instant acclaim for the “recognizable humanity of its characters” (Green, 2004) and for its themes of daily despair beneath the surface of middle-class life. The play explores themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication, and dehumanization in a commercial world. Ms. Elmore Costa directed The Zoo Story while an undergrad student of theatre in her university directing class. “Although the subject matter may be complex and difficult; I see a lot of humor in Albee’s play and we are exploring that along with the angst of this existential gem.”

The play opens on Saturday, October 28 at 2 pm and will continue for 3 weekends on Saturday and Sunday till Sunday, Nov 12, 2017.

Pioneer Park is located in Mission Hills at Washington Place and Randolph Street next to the Grant School. FREE street parking and a small parking lot. Theatregoers are encouraged to bring blankets and low back beach chairs. Folding chairs will also be provided. Reservations and tickets must be purchased in advance.
