The Wallis and Deaf West Theatre, the companies behind the Tony Award-nominated and Ovation Award-winning revival of Spring Awakening, reunite to produce three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee’s classic early play Zoo Story (1959) and acclaimed later work Homelife (2004). Together these short plays form Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo, the complete story of publishing executive Peter, his wife Ann and Jerry, the volatile stranger Peter meets in the park.

This thrilling new production – performed in both American Sign Language and spoken English – explores the struggles of human communication and connection, and is a perfect way to experience the savage wit of Edward Albee.

The production is made possible by the generous support of Meeghan and Michael Nemeroff.

WARNING: This production contains strong language and sexual content.

Please join us for post-show conversations on March 11, 16 & 22.

Group Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Please contact groups@thewallis.org or call 310.746.4000 for more information.

"An essential and heartening experience. Mr. Albee is, among other things, a chronicler of life as erosion. Yet in seeing these works side by side you discover that growing older does not have to mean creative atrophy. The Zoo Story is infused with a young man’s frustration and hormonal energy, while Homelife is the product of an older, more contemplative mind." - The New York Times
 
“Under Coy Middlebrook's direction, Albee's lacerating insights retain their delicious sting.” Los Angeles Times 

“[Albee] leaves behind a valuable trove of plays – two that I would call masterpieces (The Zoo Story and Three Tall Women).” – Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

Venue: LOVELACE STUDIO THEATER
