Meet Savannah Reich, Author of “Paradise Park Zoo” the CCA Theatre Spring Production

Image of Savannah reich, Paradise Park Zoo authorHave you ever wondered about if we are truly free – or whether we are all trapped in a cage?

And are we trapped in a cage of our own creation or someone else’s creation?

Chicago-based playwright Savannah Reich had those same questions but turned her ponderings into “Paradise Park Zoo”, the Community College of Aurora Spring Theatre Department production.

Now it’s your turn to meet Savannah your questions about “Paradise Park Zoo”, playwriting, and how to make political art that isn’t simply propaganda. (Also be sure to get your tickets for “Paradise Park Zoo!” CCA students you can attend for free by registering!)

Savannah will visit CCA from March 15 to March 17 and host a variety of panels and sessions – some open to the public and others open only to CCA students. See below for a full list of events.
