Zoo Story is RATED PG-13 and will be presented in the Studio Theatre, located at 237 South Florence Avenue, Springfield, MO

Peter sits peacefully, reading in the sunlight in Central Park. Jerry enters. He is a young, unkempt and undisciplined vagrant. Where Peter is neat, ordered, well-to-do and conventional. Jerry is a soul in torture and rebellion. He longs to communicate so fiercely that he frightens and repels Peter. Jerry is a man drained of all hope who, in his passion for company, seeks to drain his companion. With provocative humor and unrelenting suspense, the young Jerry slowly, but relentlessly, brings Peter down to his own primal level as he relates a story about his visit to the zoo.
