Outdoor drama

Theater al fresco is usually large-scale and pageant-like.  The new Pinecrest Repertory Theatre Company is trying to enrich the genre with its twinned productions of Edward Albee's Zoo Story and David Mamet's Duck Variations.

Zoostory Brian McCormack and Skye Whitcomb (he's the one with the curly hair) are Peter and Jerry in Zoo Story.  Larry Robinson is Emil, and Steve Schlam plays George in Duck Variations.  Both plays, set on a park bench, are happening amid the greenery at Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 Red Rd., Pinecrest. 

The last two chances to catch the double bill are at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 27, and Saturday, May 3.  Tickets are $10 -- and an even cheaper $8 for students, seniors and military folks.  Next up will be another double bill: Tennessee Williams' 27 Wagons Full of Cotton and A.R. Gurney's The Golden Fleece.
