Portland State University Presents Zoo Story and Mountain Language in their newly renovated Studio Theatre in Lincoln Performance Hall. These two jarring and powerful one-acts book-end the careers of two of the English Language's finest playwrights of the 20th century, Edward Albee and Harold Pinter. Zoo Story, Albee's first play ever written, tells the gripping tale of a raw human interaction between two men on a park bench. Both humorous and devastating, Zoo Story deals with classism, loneliness, and human isolation. Pinter's Mountain Language is a very brief yet enigmatic and political exploration into the effects of totalitarian repression, brutality, and inhumanity. These two plays combined provide a very moving, riveting, and captivating evening of theatre.

"Mountain Language is an atom bomb: brief, brutal and utterly devastating."-Backstage

"Tense, truthful, and hypnotic" -New York Daily News (Zoo Story)
