    The Zoo Story

    The Zoo Story is a two person short play, it was the first that Albee had ever written. It's first performane was in Berlin, it quickly moved to New York and became a success. The play has a funning time of a little under an hour, and is the most powerful and upseting play of that length you will ever see. The two charachters, Peter and Jerry, are opposites. Peter is a well adjusted upper-middle class excecutive. Jerry is a man broken by the world. His entire famially is dead, and he has never really managed to make meaningful contact with another human being. This play tells of the conflict between these two charachters, and, in a larger sense, between two worlds.

    Zoo Story...so much more

    Zoo Story is a short one act play based on two characters, Jerry and Peter. So much can be taken from this play if it's analyzed well. There is so much symbolism and relation to society that it's eerie. I would hate to ruin the play for anyone so I won't give my depiction, all I can say is that It's not like the other reviews. So much more can be taken from the play. It's one of my favourties!

    'The Zoo Story'~ Edward Albee

    This one-act play,'The Zoo Story'by Edward Albee, is a WONDERFUL play if you analyze well. It carries symbolism throughout it and shows how extremely different the characters, Jerry and Peter,are. Peter, being a family man with a somewhat of a 'perfect' life, meets Jerry, someone who has lost all sense of lfe and it's matters on a park bench. This play goes to show that life is how you make it, and that you are who you are. No one can ever change you or take that away. It is very inspiring.
