Two plays entertain on one stage

By August 2, 2011

Shocking revelations, ironic comedy and pure human needs fill two brilliant one-act plays in August with Bob and Ro Productions in the Studio Theatre.

First, in A.R. Gurney’s “The Problem,” a woman has an announcement, surprising her husband and leading to a series of revelations in this absurd comedy about keeping the passion alive.

Then, in “The Zoo Story” by Edward Albee, two men meet in a park. One wants to be alone with his thoughts; the other is desperate for human contact. The two of them begin a conversation filled with ironic humor and dramatic suspense that ends in a violent and shocking comment on the human condition.

Here are two plays, each complete within themselves, that together will create a thought-provoking and intense theatrical experience.

Bob and Ro Productions presents “The Problem” and “The Zoo Story” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., through Aug.28. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 seniors and $15 students, and can be arranged by calling the box office at (877) 532-7171 between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tickets can also be purchased at the door, The Studio Theatre, 1028 R St. in Sacramento.

The play contains some strong language.
