At Home at the Zoo: Homelife & The Zoo Story - Off-Broadway
This new production of Edward Albeeâ€™s At Home at the Zoo, directed by Drama Desk Award-winner Lila Neugebauer (Signature Plays, The Antipodes), honors Legacy Playwright Edward Albee, who passed away in 2016. In act one, Homelife, we see Peter and his wife Ann in their Upper East Side apartment; in the second act, the classic The Zoo Story, Peter is forever altered by an oddly persistent stranger in Central Park. With jolts of brutality and Albeeâ€™s signature dark humor, this seminal play explores both the love and the cruelty that we inflict on each other every day.
Running Time: Two hours, with one intermission

Introverts weren't exactly regarded as sexy, at least not as a norm, when Edward Albee's one-act classic 'The Zoo Story' premiered in 1958, launching the career of a playwright whose name became synonymous with the psychoanalyzation of privileged white American dysfunctionality.
