FEBRUARY 15, 2019 - 7:30PM

The Zoo Story tells the story of Peter—a middle aged husband enjoying a Sunday afternoon in Central park.  Peter meets Jerry, a self-described transient and thus begins a comical relationship full of tense and dark undertones.  At times hilarious and disturbing, The Zoo Story was Edward Albee’s first hit play.  Albee has received three Pulitzer Prizes for drama—for A Delicate Balance (1967), Seascape (1975), and Three Tall Women (1994) and two Tony awards for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?(1960) and The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? (2002). The Zoo Story won the 1960 Drama Desk Award Vernon Rice Award.

This performance stars Lake Erie College Sophomore Cameron Zona in the role of Jerry and Jim Hill in the role of Peter.  Director Fath was a double major at Lake Erie College, in Theatre and Psychology, and has taught at the college as an adjunct. After LEC, he completed his Master's at Kent State University (M.Ed. Clinical Mental Health Counseling) in 2017.  He ran the Theatre program at Fairport Harding High School, staging shows such as Almost, Maine, among others.  He recently staged August: Osage County as well.  He currently runs a small business, the food truck Kings' Dawg Haus, which combines all of his passions: helping people, entertaining, cooking, and traveling.  In his spare time, he enjoys returning to the theater to immerse himself into the creative world.
