Auditions – Garden Pests, by Jean McConnell, The Zoo Story by Edward Albee
Two one-act plays for a Studio production 14th-16th March.
Garden Pests by Jean McConnell
This short one act comedy, is about two keen gardeners, from different social backgrounds, who meet in a magnificent garden from which neither intends to go home empty handed.
A cast of two women any age between 35 and 55/60, one wealthy and haughty, one an ordinary northern lass.
The Zoo Story by Edward Albee
A stunning tour de force that made Albee’s reputation. This is a theatrically simple yet thematically complex long one-act play in which two men, strangers to each other meet in Central Park on a summer Sunday afternoon. The play explores themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication, social disparity, dehumanization in a materialistic world. The drama accelerates to an unexpected climax.
A cast of two men aged between 35 and 55.
