A comedy, drama, farce, tragedy, romance by John Guare. Directed by Rick Colhoun for First Impressions Theatre.
The story is set in Queens, New York in 1965. Zoo keeper, Artie Shaugnessy, whose long aspiring dream of becoming a successful songwriter, lives here with his wife Bananas. Interestingly, his mistress lives in the suite right below and it is her goal to have Artie to herself. Meanwhile, the Pope is due to visit New York and Artie’s son goes AWOL from Fort Dix; oblivious to this Artie is planning a visit to see his old school buddy who has become a successful Hollywood producer hoping he will finally get the song writing success he has been craving. Throw in some farcical nuns, a deficient starlet, a home-made bomb and you have quite a zoo; but then, wait, there are troubles at the real zoo too!
