Oct. 19-21, 2016 - At Home at the Zoo
 

Pulaski Technical College theater students will present At Home at the Zoo Oct. 19-21 in the Center for Humanities and Arts (CHARTS) Theater on the Main Campus, 3000 West Scenic Drive.

Show times are as follows:
Wednesday, Oct. 19 - 2 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 20 - 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 21 - 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for general admission and $5 for students. Doors open half an hour prior to show time, and seating is first-come, first serve.

At Home at the Zoo combines playwright Edward Albee's classic, The Zoo Story (1959), with its prequel, Homelife, to form a complete story of Peter (a book editor), Ann (his wife), and Jerry (a desperate man Peter meets in the park). The first act, also called Homelife, revolves around the coupleís boring marriage and their brutal, failed attempts to communicate about it. The tone changes dramatically when Peter goes to Central Park to read a book and meets Jerry. Jerry begins to tell Peter tale after tale, each more lurid than the next. Jerry appears to be completely alone. At one point, he pulls a knife on Peter, but drops it. Albee's brilliantly recombined play demonstrates the essential loneliness of humanity.

The three-member cast includes Tanisha Price (Ann), Mathew Fisher (Jerry), and Clay Terry (Peter) under the direction of PTC theatre instructor Sheila Glasscock. The students also will stage the play as part of the Arkansas State Kennedy Centerís American College Theater preliminary competition taking place Oct. 27-29 at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith.

The play is for mature audiences due to language and violence.
