AT HOME AT THE ZOO
WHEN: Nov 02, 2019 - Nov 10, 2019
WHERE: The Loft at UCPAC, 1601 Irving St., Rahway
At Home at the Zoo combines Edward 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 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. Jerry appears to be completely alone; he can't even make a connection with his landlady's dog.
