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.
