This new production of Edward Albee’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 Albee’s signature dark humor, this seminal play explores both the love and the cruelty that we inflict on each other every day.
"Critic’s Pick! Funny and powerful! A terrific revival of this master playwright’s double bill proves there was nowhere he would not go."
- Jesse Green, The New York Times
"4 Stars! Unmissable!"
- Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
"Electrifying, thrilling and illuminating!"
- Laura Collins-Hughes, The Village Voice
