Marin Classic Theatre, dedicated to bringing audiences the best in classic American drama, is back with a sampling of scenes from upcoming plays and a few old favorites from past performances. Their Mid-Summer Classics opens with a scene from Edward Albee’s Zoo Story. This two-character play takes place on a park bench. Peter (Ben Colteaux) is sitting on the bench trying to read when Jerry (Karl Erickson) walks by and tells Peter that he’s been to the zoo. What starts off as light conversation between two strangers soon turns into a psychological drama that changes the lives of both men forever.
