Sep 16, Danya rated it it was amazing Shelves: I first read The Zoo Story in a different edition: When I found out the there was a prequel to The Zoo Story, which is one of my favorite plays, I immediately read it. It was every bit as good as I was hoping it would be. The Zoo Story, while an excellent play in its own right, has only two characters, one of whom is rather underdeveloped.

This in turn makes the impact of The Zoo Hixtoria even greater. Because Peter’s humanity is emphasized in Homelife, and because the theme of human vs.
And while I’m not going to give away the ending, the horrifying events at the end of the play are more disturbing once you know who Peter is and what his life is like. Now, this all makes it sound as though Homelife is just there to strengthen Edwar Zoo Story. Homelife is a wonderful play by itself, and is a powerful one act, although it is much more subtle, with less of a shock factor than The Zoo Story. But it has some wonderful points and monologues, and is a shockingly realistic portrayal of the complications that can exist in the most normal, happy, and “good” families.
Homelife is a conversation between Peter and his wife Ann. They are both in love and distant, familiar with each other and total strangers, happy but with a sense of something missing. Their conversation is fascinating and, unlike many Albee plays, not entirely disturbing. In fact, in the end it is somewhat uplifting. Which actually makes the albee act, or second play, The Zoo Story, even more awful.
But either way, both of these plays are excellent and highly recommended.

May 20, Gregorio rated it really liked it. Although Alebe Home is definitely not a stand alone one act, zoo story is, making At Home a tangent to a phenomenal play that poises an important question of placement in a human society.
The only reason why I rated this 4 stars is due to the hjstoria act, because the first Act, even though it is focused on something completely different, simply isn’t as profound, nor as experimental story wise, and the overall arc is dwl as prominent. Zoo Story, on the other hand, will grab you and give you a good sh Although At Home is definitely not a stand alone one act, zoo story is, making At Home a tangent to a phenomenal play that poises an important question of placement in a human society.
Zoo Story, on the other hand, will zookogico you and give you a good shake, and you’ll remember it for some time. Jun 15, Sarah Marie rated it really liked it Shelves: I was surprised by this one. Sep 16, Thezoo rated it did not like it. Dec 22, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: May 20, Gonzalo rated it it was amazing. Mar 28, Ryan Lindberg rated it really liked it.
These are technically two different plays and the 4 star is only because of Homelife; otherwise, the Zoo Story would be 5 stars. Homelife is interesting but Zoo Story is far superior. As interesting as Homelife is, it doesn’t hold a candle to At the Zoo, and I truly think it unnecessary as a prequel although certainly entertaining and as a fleshing-out of Peter’s character.
It’s as if Albee is zoologico “See? Albee is a genius playwrighter Great dialogue; dramatic ending Peter is a foil for both Ann in act one and Jerry in act two.

His works are considered well-crafted and often unsympathetic examinations of the modern condition. Younger American playwrights, such as Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel, credit Albee’s daring mix of theatricalism and biting dialogue with helping to reinvent the post-war American theatre in the early s.
Albee’s dedication to continuing to evolve his voice — as evidenced in later productions such as The Goat or Who is Sylvia — also routinely marks him as distinct from other American playwrights of his era.
Albee himself described his work as “an examination of the American Scene, an attack on the substitution of artificial for real values in our society, a condemnation of complacency, cruelty, and emasculation and vacuity, a stand against the fiction that everything in this slipping land of ours is peachy-keen.
