The Zoo Story

 

Review


Edward Albee wrote “The Zoo Story” in 1958, and the Bedlam Theatre Concern’s production stays true to the time period. Though it has a fairly minimalist set—a single bench, with the surrounding park cleverly represented through lighting and sound—the costumes not only convey the time period, but suit the characters perfectly. Peter is a middle-class family man; Jerry is a lower class boarding house tenant. When Jerry comes across Peter sitting on a park bench reading, he initiates a conversation that takes unexpected twists and turns. Collin Doyle as Jerry is appropriately intense—capturing the character’s wide range of emotions. James Hamilton’s Peter listens to Jerry attentively, hanging on his every word, responding with naivety and horror. While the play offers some meaty food for thought, there are times were it risks becoming just two dudes yelling at each other, but overall worth the Fringe. - Chelsea Novak
