At Home at the Zoo

recently expanded masterpiece
EDWARD ALBEE’S AT HOME AT THE ZOO
directed by Mary Robinson
February 25–April 24, 2011 in the Kogod Cradle

American master Edward Albee has outdone himself once again with a riveting new drama that expands on The Zoo Story, the one-act that launched his career 50 years ago. In this meticulous and nuanced look at the lives of three New Yorkers, an everyday conversation between a husband and wife takes an unexpected turn into dangerously personal territory. The revelations and confrontations catapult them from their delicately balanced world onto life-changing paths. With the intensity and honesty for which Albee is known, At Home at the Zoo reveals the cutting truth about the razor’s edge of our humanity.
