WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A pair of relentlessly suspenseful one-acts, Harold Pinter's The Dumb Waiter and Edward Albee's The Zoo Story explore the flipsides of killing time. Written in 1957 and 1958, respectively, 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. Presented by Signal Ensemble Theatre.
