The Wallis and Deaf West Theatre production of


Directed by Coy Middlebrook

Mar 07 - Mar 26


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, and is recommended for mature audiences only.

Please join us for post-show conversations on the matinee March 11, and after the evening performances on March 16, 22 & 24.
