Edward Albee's AT HOME AT THE ZOO
May 6 - May 28, 2011
America's greatest living playwright, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), creates a new classic by revisiting an old masterpiece. Using his breakthrough 1958 one-act play The Zoo Story as Act Two in this full length work with a new first act, Homelife. Peter, a tweedy book editor, and his wife, Ann, are having an everyday conversation which takes an unexpected turn into dangerously personal territory. It's the kind of talk that can drive a husband out for a walk—to Central Park, where Jerry, a desperate outcast, awaits. An unforgettable pairing of Albee's original The Zoo Story with a freshly penned prequel, Edward Albee's At Home at the Zoo bares its teeth to threaten the delicately balanced world its characters inhabit.
