ABOUT THE SHOW:

Commissioned by First Stage Milwaukee, ZINK is about true courage in the face of unpredictable predators. Imaginative, funny, and heartbreaking, it's the story of the relationship of Becky, a lonely pre-teen girl with leukemia, to her guardian-angel herd of zebras. The zebras range from street-smart Ice Z to grandfatherly Papa Zeke, effete Zilch to endearing Shlep, a furry green monkey sure that he is actually a zebra. From them, Becky learns about Zink, a mythical polka-dotted zebra, once an outcast but later a hero with the most courage and biggest heart. Becky's health worsens and she zaps back and forth between her real life and the zebra world until the shattering, breathtaking, and uplifting conclusion. (Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.)
