Event Details

Towngate Theatre presents The Zoo Story by Edward Albee at the Wheeling Park Amphitheater 7:30pm Friday, August 7.

This one-act play stars Adam Marquart and Dailey Ward and is directed by Tim Thompson.

Peter, a neat, ordered, well-to-do and conventional man is approached by a young, unkempt and undisciplined vagrant, Jerry, at a Central Park bench. Desperate to interact with other people, Jerry is a soul in torture but frightens and repels his reluctant listener. With provocative humor and unrelenting suspense, Jerry forces Peter to listen to stories about his life and a visit to the zoo – ultimately bringing him down to his own savage level.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online, by calling 304-242-7700 or at the Amphitheater if available.

Seating is limited to only 25 so advance tickets are strongly recommended. Mask wearing is also recommended to coincide with state & CDC guidelines.

Sponsored by Unified Bank.
