Based on the play The Zoo Story by Edward Albee, the performance is presented within the framework of the "Social Theatre Shop"
One bench. Two characters. Peter, a quiet man that has a family and Jerry, a restless and rather edgy man. The invisible strings that connect those two strangers in order to rescue them from a fatal confrontation. Can it be that they are both victims of a leveling society? Can it be that they are both victims of a tragedy that sometimes reveals itself without notice? The fragile and flimsy security that middle class life offers is destroyed by the aggressive and desperate loner that longs for some kind of communication. Jerry attacks Peter and he defends himself. We can see, however, that Peter gradually transforms to an attacker as well, to guard those earned through this kind of life. It seems as one is the natural following of the other. They are the same thing in two different versions; a life that changes people and changes itself; order and security versus comme il faut and slumber. At the same time we see fever of existence, despair of loneliness, anger, and ongoing need to communicate and be with another person. “Hell is other people” as Sartre puts it and the need to confirm or deny your existence as spirit, mind or body passes through another person and takes on enormous dimensions as it penetrates the beautiful, idyllic atmosphere of a park in a sunny noon just to lighten the darkest sides of our existence.
