Two Plays on a Bench: Tri-C Theater Students Stage ‘The Duck Variations’ and ‘The Zoo Story’

CLEVELAND:  In their most basic form, one-act plays The Duck Variations and The Zoo Story can be summed up with just seven words: Two men meet on a park bench.

The encounters — which examine life and death on vastly different levels — will unfold onstage during back-to-back student productions Feb. 6-9, 2020 at the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).

The free performances will take place in the Fran and Jules Belkin Theatre at the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts, 2809 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland. 

The Duck Variations by playwright David Mamet involves a discussion between two elderly men watching ducks from a park bench. The sometimes awkward conversation about the activity on the pond reflects themes of human nature.

The Zoo Story by playwright Edward Albee brings together two strangers from different walks of life at a bench in New York’s Central Park. Their interaction grows in intensity before coming to a violent conclusion.

The two plays are often presented together given their similar settings.

Showtimes for the dual presentation are 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 6; 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, and Saturday, Feb. 8; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis for each performance.
