Cattaraugus County Campus, Cutco Theater: 4/27, 6 p.m.

The Zoo Story concerns two characters, Peter and Jerry, who meet on a park bench in New York City's Central Park. Peter is a middle-class publishing executive with a wife, two daughters, two cats and two parakeets. Jerry is an isolated and disheartened man, desperate to have a meaningful conversation with another human being. He intrudes on Peter’s peaceful state by interrogating him and forcing him to listen to stories about his life, and the reason behind his visit to the zoo.

Of the original production, The New Yorker said: “Unique…brilliant…a comic nightmare, fantasy of the highest order.” The Villager called it ”the finest play, written by an American, that can be seen for love or money.”
