Description

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.
