Zookeepers in Captivity

Directed by Jenny Billot
July 19 - 21 | Lusher Lion's Gate Theater

The students of the NOLA Project High School Intensive present ZOOKEEPERS IN CAPTIVITY, the World Premiere new comedy by James Bartelle. ZOOKEEPERS depicts a city zoo in disarray. But it’s not the animals running wild here–it’s the staff. From an overworked and under-medicated manager, to a an elderly hippo caretaker that may or may not be dealing black market animal products, to the new employee who is just trying to earn enough so she doesn’t have to drive Uber on weekends, this modern day workplace farce blends comedy, fantasy, puppetry, and a whole flock of talking flamingos.
