"I've been to the zoo." 

These opening words usher the audience into one of the most iconic plays in American theater history:  The Zoo Story . More than fifty years later, master playwright Edward Albee ( Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  and  The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? ) wrote a prequel to this classic.  Home Story  contains the events in Peter's life immediately preceding his encounter with Jerry on the park bench and is every bit as powerful as the original. We meet Ann, Peter's wife, and see the conversation that compelled Peter to go for that fateful walk in the park. For the first time collected in one volume,  At Home at the Zoo  is a must for any theater lover.
