The Zoo Story


Dave (Theatre of the Dales) Robertson warmly invites everyone to a free performance of

THE ZOO STORY
by
Edward Albee

with
 Guillaume Blanchard
and
David Robertson


First staged in 1959, shortly before he wrote Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Albee's one-act tour de force is as wry and hypnotic as ever.

Two New Yorkers strike up a conversation in Central Park. One irritates, amuses and intrigues the other with his life story, till the listener is caught up in a climax at once shocking and deeply moving.

You can catch it next weekend at the following times and venues:

On Saturday, Sept 17th,
at 3pm in Dagmar Wood (opposite Dave's house) or in the nearby LS6 Cafe (often called the Clock), if it rains.

Also, at 8pm
in Cafe Lento on North Lane, Headingley (where there will be a licensed bar).

On Sunday, Sept 18th,
at 3pm in Dagmar Wood. (Again, in the Clock, if it rains.)

Also, at 9.30pm
in the garden of 1, Grosvenor Road (Dave's place) by the light of a bonfire. (Shelter will be rigged up, if rain threatens.)
