About this show

America's greatest living playwright, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Seascape), 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, Albee has written a prequel which shows Peter from The Zoo Story at home. 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.
