"It's just that if you can't deal with people, you have to make a start somewhere. With animals. Don't you see? A person has to find a way of dealing with something. If not with people...something." Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright Edward Albee, At Home at the Zoo (Zoo Story) delves deep into the complex concept of human loneliness and social disparity. Directed by Eric Hill, At Home at the Zoo (Zoo Story) joins Albee's classic play The Zoo Story (1959) with its prequel, Homelife, written 45 years later.
Set in New York City, Homelife opens with a look inside the isolated marriage of wealthy textbook company executive Peter and his articulate Upper East Side wife Ann. Unable to communicate their feelings to each other, the foundation of their marriage is built on unspoken agreements. Somehow they find comfort in their boring relationship, yet they are never truly on the same page.
The Zoo Story follows Peter to Central Park. While sitting on a park bench, Peter encounters a forlorn and forsaken stranger named. This stranger, who appears desperate for human contact and connection, forces Peter to listen to his stories as he digs deep into Peter's life and his own.
gas·light (noun): a form of manipulation through persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying in an attempt to destabilize and delegitimize a target.
Also known as Angel Street, Gaslight is one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time and was made into a movie starring Ingrid Bergman. It tells the story of Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, who is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife Bella to the brink of insanity with seemingly overwhelming kindness while sowing seeds of doubt, memory loss, and misperceptions. This play contains some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theater. And in 2017, its themes are nothing if not timely.
This 90-minute thrill ride takes you into the most dangerous place on Earth: parenthood. Two sets of parents meet for the first time to settle their sons' nasty schoolyard tangle. Tensions quickly emerge around the best way to raise a child. The meeting progresses, the liquor flows, and the gloves come off in this viciously funny comedy of bad manners. God of Carnage is a Tony and Olivier Award-winning play by Yasmina Reza, the author of Art.
Written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner David Auburn (Proof), Lost Lake is an engrossing, evocative play. Part drama, part melancholy comedy, Lost Lake relates the story of Veronica and Hogan, imperfect strangers tangled up in each other's lives by circumstance. Veronica, in need of an escape from life's uphill battle, takes her children to a lakeside rental. Unfortunately for her, not only is the property is less than ideal, but it includes a bedraggled and secluded estate owner: Hogan. Both fighting their own battles, the two outcasts find complicated comfort in their shared isolation. Directed by Daisy Walker (Dracula: The Musical), this stirring, unexpected, and visceral play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.
Likely the Bard's final piece that he penned alone, The Tempest sets the stage for Prospero, a betrayed magician bent on revenge. Prospero's seething softens, however, when he sees through his daughter that love and forgiveness conquer darkness. Enjoy twilight performances of this play in Shakespeare & Company's new Garden Theatre under the Berkshire summer skies.
This captures the hilarious yet touching relationships of a circle of friends as they back their way into middle age.
