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.
Edward Albee's At Home At The Zoo will feature Zeitgeist regulars Peter Brown (Farragut North, Spin), Christine Power (Private Fears in Public Places, Spin) and Artistic Director David J. Miller in his Zeitgeist debut onstage. The role of Jerry in The Zoo Story is a role Mr. Miller has always wanted to play since first experiencing the script over thirty years ago.
