Sometimes the answer to life’s queries can be found hidden deep within the eyes of a caged animal. Edward Albee’s “The Zoo Story” begins during a peaceful afternoon in New York City’s Central Park.

While enjoying his usual afternoon of reading, Peter is interrupted by Jerry’s unusual tales and personality. As the play progresses, it poses questions of human interaction and socioeconomic battles. “The Zoo Story” is filled with wonderful dialogue, universal themes and a conclusion sure to leave the audience speechless.

“The Zoo Story” is directed by junior theatre major Rickey Glover. Freshman history major Juliana Medford is the stage manager. Senior theatre major Scott Hoppman plays Peter and senior theatre major Tim Young plays Jerry.

What would you do if your world fell apart and suddenly seemed an illusion, or worse, a hallucination? “Clara” by Arthur Miller tells the story of Albert Kroll, whose world has fallen apart. His daughter, Clara, has been murdered and he is the only one with any leads, but to get the information he must first deal with his own demons.

Clara is directed by interdisciplinary studies and theatre major Jonathan Greene and is state managed by Jeni Anderman, who is also working as effects designer. The cast includes theatre major Marcus Riter as Kroll, English major Will Izlar as Fine, Jessica Cobble as Tierney and interdisciplinary studies major Kelly Izlar as Clara.
