Permanent Transient Productions presents Edward Albee's classic THE ZOO STORY playing now through April 8th at Spark Theater. On a seemingly innocuous park bench on a sun-drenched Sunday afternoon, Peter, anuptight family man, meets Jerry, a garrulous brute. Forty-five minutes later,an unimaginable crime transpires. Full of savagery and wit, Albee’s very first play is laden with twists, turns, and bite.
Permanent Transient Productions is a newly formed company in Denver, founded by members of the Visionbox Ensemble, Anthony Bianco and Kevin Lowry. Bianco has worked atthe Denver Center and Colorado Shakespeare Festival, and Lowry is a member of Hot Nap, one of Denver’s hottest improv troupes. Director Margaret Whittum, also a Visionbox Ensemble member, has directed in Edinburgh, Seoul, and across Canada. The Zoo Story is Permanent Transient’s inaugural production.
Edward Albee is a distinguished American Playwright, best known for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Albee has won three Pulitzer Prizes for drama — for A Delicate Balance (1967), Seascape (1975), and Three Tall Women (1994). He received the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts in 1996, and a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2005. THE ZOO STORY was written in 1958, and was Albee’s first play, premiering in Berlin, and later in New York City.
