THE STORY: Edward Albee delves deeper into his play THE ZOO STORY by adding a first act, HOMELIFE, which precedes Peter's fateful meeting with Jerry on a park bench in Central Park. The Zoo Story may be performed independently. However, HOMELIFE may only be performed as part of the full length play AT HOME AT THE ZOO.
“Edward Albee is our greatest playwright, delivering a genuinely fascinating, first-class drama that calls out to be seen.” —Journal News.

“An essential and heartening experience…If HOMELIFE is an openhanded slap, THE ZOO STORY is a gut punch with a closed fist. Edward Albee is a voice unparalleled in American theater.” —The New York Times.

“The dialogue crackles and the tension runs high.” —Associated Press.

“Darkly comic and thrilling.” —Time Out New York.
