About this show

Hartford Stage concludes its 40th Anniversary celebration with Peter and Jerry, a world premiere by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning Edward Albee. The legendary playwright expands his groundbreaking first play The Zoo Story into a full evening of theatre with a new first act, entitled Homelife. A quiet and unassuming man, Peter is simply looking for a quiet place to read his book. In Homelife, he is interrupted by his wife, Ann, who wants to talk about the stuff of life--spinach, cats, kids, marriage, sex and mortality. In The Zoo Story, we find Peter on his favorite bench in Central Park. His attempt to read his book is thwarted by Jerry, a stranger intent on taking over the bench.
