At Home at the Zoo combines Albee’s classic, The Zoo Story, with its prequel, Homelife, to form a complete story of Peter (a book editor), Ann (his wife), and Jerry (a desperate man Peter meets in the park). The play begins by offering a revealing look at Peter and Ann’s boring marriage and their brutal, failed attempts to communicate about it. The tone changes dramatically when Peter goes out to the park and meets Jerry. Jerry begins to tell Peter tale after tale, each more lurid than the next. Albee’s brilliantly recombined play demonstrates the essential loneliness of humanity
