The ZOO STORY
By Edward Albee
Caleb Goodman and Collin Johnson
Not your average “walk in the park”.
A man consumed with loneliness encounters another sitting on a bench in Central Park and strikes up a conversation stating "I've been to the Zoo". The two are eventually drawn into a shocking act of violence. The play contains elements of realism as well as theatre of the absurd becoming multi-textured work expressing themes of isolation, the need for human connection and class differences in American society.
"The Zoo Story" by Edward Albee was first performed in Berlin in 1959. After much critical praise the work premiered at the Provincetown Playhouse and played a significant role in the early Off-Broadway movement of the 1960s, making it's author something of a household name.
The play is one of the most frequently produced works by Albee (author of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "A Delicate Balance").
