“I’ve been to the zoo.” These opening words usher the audience into The Zoo Story, the play that launched Edward Albee’s career. At Home at the Zoo combines The Zoo Story with a “prequel,” Homelife, which Albee wrote 50 years later to complete his early masterwork. With jolts of brutality and Albee’s signature dark humor, this revised seminal play explores both the love and the cruelty that we inflict on each other every day.
“Electrifying, thrilling and illuminating.”
— The Village Voice
“An essential and heartening experience. . . Edward Albee is a voice unparalleled in American Theater.”
— The New York Times
