Green Zoo Theatre to Present A NIGHT AT THE ZOO: AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS, Begin. 9/5
Two one-act plays. Live music. Laughter and tears. Bathtubs and wind chimes. Existential angst and a pinball machine.

Evenings will also feature guest musical performances by the following:
Cameron Andreas (from CAMP) on September 5 and 19 Heart Hunter (aka Karen Kohtz) on September 7, 12, 14, and 21
Marcus Eugene on September 6, 13, and 20.
The play runs Thursday to Saturday, from September 5 through September 21 at the WaterCooler (1401 W. Idaho St.) in Boise. Tickets are $7, and are available online at greenzoo.brownpapertickets.com or at the door.
The account of Jeremy (David Cowan) and Harold (Jeff Young), two strangers doomed to live together in a space filled with fragments of toys and machinery. With no idea of who they are, where they came from, and no place to go, the two very different characters must fight to make a purpose for themselves. WAITING GAMES presents a world where there is no reason to function and nothing to believe in, except the hope of a forgotten past and the numbness that hard labor often provides.
LIKE IT WAS NEVER THERE
Directed by David Ketchum.
Starring Rod Wolfe and Leah Reynolds.
As old age threatens to destroy him, a wind chime (Rod Wolfe) desperately vies for the attention of the Wind (Leah Reynolds). She holds the missing piece to his unfinished symphony. But the Wind is busy. She has to touch every forest, every field, and every treetop. LIKE IT WAS NEVER THERE is a story about creation in the face of mortality set on the front lawn of the house around the block.
