ABOUT THE PLAY:
PARADISE PARK ZOO
by Savannah Reich
Directed by Erinn Hartley
The animals at the zoo are very busy; experimenting with meditation, processing their relationship, honing their wilderness survival skills. None of them are talking about their cages. The cages are not important.
A three act epic meditation on capitalism, the radical left, and the impossible task of imagining ourselves free.
