About At Home at the Zoo: Homelife & The Zoo Story:

In Act One, Homelife, we meet Peter and his wife, who live a comfortable but vaguely unhappy bourgeois existence; 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.

Our At Home at the Zoo: Homelife & The Zoo Story Review

In 2001 Edward Albee wrote the drawing room one act play, Homelife, as an opening to The Zoo Story, his 1958 brutal one act classic. Seeing The Zoo Story on it's own you wonder why does Peter, an upper middle class publisher, husband and father, stay in the park and interact with Jerry, a disenfranchised, loner and boarding house occupant. Homelife supplies the answer.
