Edward Albee's AT HOME AT THE ZOO
Sept 19-Oct 26, 2014
Directed by Steve Scott
"Sometimes it's necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly."
A man sits at home and talks to his wife, then sits in the park and talks to a stranger. Edward Albee delves deeper into his play THE ZOO STORY by adding a first act, HOMELIFE, in which we witness Peter's conversation with his wife Anne shortly before he has his fateful meeting with Jerry on a bench in Central Park. The great American one-act and its newly written prequel are, together, one of the simplest and most shattering plays ever written.

Adapted and Directed by Artistic Director Terry McCabe
"I have endeavored to give some account of my strange experiences in his company from the chance which first brought us together."
A new production of one of City Lit's most acclaimed shows, an exploration of the relationship between Dr. John H. Watson and his remarkable friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Adapted from two of the greatest Holmes stories, "A Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Final Problem," and featuring Holmes's two most brilliant adversaries, the American opera singer Miss Irene Adler and the retired mathematics teacher Professor James Moriarty.
