About the Author:
Edward Franklin Albee III was an American dramatist known for works including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Zoo Story. His works are viewed as very much created and regularly unsympathetic assessments of the cutting edge condition. His initial works mirrored an authority and Americanization of the Theater of the Absurd that discovered its top in works by European writers, for example, Jean Genet, Samuel Beckett, and Eugène Ionesco. More youthful American writers, for example, Pulitzer Prize-champ Paula Vogel, credit Albee’s challenging blend of theatricalism and gnawing exchange with assisting with reevaluating the post-war American theater in the mid-1960s. Albee’s devotion to proceeding to advance his voice — as prove in later creations, for example, The Goat or Who is Sylvia (2000) — likewise routinely stamps him as of particular from other American writers of his time.
Inside this book:
PETER: A man in his early forties, neither fat nor gaunt, neither handsome nor homely. He wears tweeds, smokes a pipe, carries horn-rimmed glasses. Although he is moving into middle age, his dress and his manner would suggest a man younger.
JERRY: A man in his late thirties, not poorly dressed, but carelessly. What was once trim and lightly muscled body has begun to go to fat; and while he is no longer handsome, it is evident that he once was. His fall from physical grace should not suggest debauchery; he has, to come closest to it, a great weariness.
It is Central Park; a Sunday afternoon in summer; the present. There are two park benches, one towards either side of the stage; they both face the audience. Behind them: foliage, trees, sky.
[At the beginning PETER is seated on one of the benches. As the curtain rises, PETER is seated on the bench stage-right. He is reading a book. He stops reading, cleans his glasses, goes back to reading. JERRY enters.] JERRY: I’ve been to the zoo. [PETER doesn’t notice.] I said, I’ve been to the zoo. MISTER, I’VE BEEN TO THE ZOO! PETER: Hm… What?. I’m sorry, were you talking to me?
JERRY: I went to the zoo, and then I walked until I came here. Have I been walking north?
PETER: [Puzzled] North? Why. I . . . I think so. Let me see.
JERRY: [Pointing past the audience] Is that Fifth avenue?
PETER: Why ya; yes, it is.
JERRY: And what is that cross street there; that one, to the right?
PETER: That? Oh, that’s Seventy-fourth Street
