Peter is a publishing executive sitting on a park bench, reading. Along comes Jerry, seeking conversation.
Jerry has just been to the Zoo, and this is his story... which Peter will listen to. Like it or not.
When Edward Albee wrote The Zoo Story in 1958, it was the first play that he wrote as an adult, and only the second play that he wrote in his lifetime. The Zoo Story was produced for the first time in Berlin, Germany. It opened on September 28, 1959, at the Schiller Theatre Werkstatt. After much critical praise in Germany, it was less than three months before The Zoo Story finally opened in New York. It debuted off-Broadway at the Provincetown Playhouse on January 14, 1960, and instantly had a strong impact on critics and audiences alike. The vast majority of the reviews were positive and many hoped for a revitalized theatre because of it.
