At Home at the Zoo (The Zoo Story)


This "The Zoo Story" takes place two days after "The Zoo Story."


Peter returns to the bench in the park once again, and everything seems as if nothing had happened.


"We should talk," Peter’s wife Ann says.

"I’ve been to the zoo," Jerry, whom Peter met in the park, says.


The voices echo in his mind once again, memories piecing themselves together in his head. How will he face it all?


"At Home At The Zoo" pricks the bubble of urban life's prosperity, tears apart the veil of stability in modern society, and exposes the raw reality of modern urban life in its most unadorned form.

#School of Drama students



The Unthinkable Drama Festival 2023 is conceptualized and organized by the School of Drama. Continuing the spirit of "unthinkable", three graduating Directing students will lead the actors and production team to break through imagination and provide a fresh and daring interpretation of classic works. The other two plays include Simon Stephens’ Morning and Poon Wai-sum’s The Massage King.


The three productions will be performed alternately, showcasing the confusion and transformation of life during adolescence, adulthood, and middle age, hoping to provoke a conversation with the contemporary audience about the meaning of life.
