The Winni Players Community Theatre Presents
At Home at the Zoo
By Edward Albee
Two related one-act plays, written nearly five decades apart, come together for one full story. Edward Albee is nothing less than a master of American drama, and 46 years after his one-act The Zoo Story premiered, he returned to the subjects and characters to write a kind of prequel in Homelife and updating the entire story to a more contemporary time. Both begin with the central character Peter: first, at home leisurely reading, where his wife initiates a wide-ranging conversation with the often-dreaded words “we should talk,” beginning a long Sunday afternoon that ends with Peter shifting scene to take up reading at the park. And that second act and conversation begins when he’s once again interrupted by seemingly innocent words delivered by an unkempt stranger, Jerry, who announces "I've been to the zoo.” Like the conversation with his wife, the topics and tempo will shift into dangerous territory, and Peter will find himself at a crossroads.
