Edward Albee has written many famous plays, among them Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, but for many, two of his shortest are also two of his best.
The Zoo Story gives us a pair of strangers and a park bench. Peter is trying to take a simple break from his conventional routine and Jerry needs someone to witness the final brilliant moments of his life. In The Sandbox, Mommy and Daddy are taking Grandma to the beach. An angel, disguised as a young man, waits there to ease her out of this life. By turns loving and manipulative, playing with wildly different styles, Albee takes us on two unforgettable magic carpet rides. In the cast of Zoo Story are Robert Forgett and Doug Ryan, while the cast of The Sandbox includes Sylvia Bloom, Robert Forgett, Christine Decker and Will Jacob.
