At Home At The Zoo by Edward Albee

Chicago Premiere
Written by Edward Albee
Directed by Dennis Zacek
Oct. 1 – Oct. 31, 2010


Victory Gardens’ Artistic Director Dennis Zacek accented his 34 year tenure with an American classic five decades in the making. America’s greatest living playwright pairs his provocative classic, The Zoo Story, the one-act that launched his career fifty years ago, with a new first act: Homelife. The lives of three New Yorkers are changed forever as the revelations and confrontations of one sunny afternoon send them down surprising new paths. With shocking secrets to reveal, sharp truths to confront, and hearts to burst with the complexities of humanity, experience the intensity that is true Albee drama.
