Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry (Off-Broadway) Story

[IMG:R]Second Stage Theatre brings a unique event to the theater season with Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry, a special pairing of two one-act plays by one of our greatest dramatists. Edward Albee wrote The Zoo Story in 1958. The story of a fateful encounter in Central Park between two men from very different social and economic backgrounds. Peter is a middle-class family man who lives in ignorance of the world outside his seemingly perfect life. Jerry is a troubled soul who has just returned from a visit to the Central Park Zoo. Albee's very first play, The Zoo Story is a riveting stage dialogue and makes up the second act of Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry. [IMG:L]For the first act, Albee has crafted a new play titled Homelife, which delves into the character of Peter and his relationship with his wife Ann prior to the events of The Zoo Story. The two acts combined make for an electrifying new theater piece, performed by three of New York's finest stage actors. Catch Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry through December 30 at Second Stage Theatre!
