EDWARD ALBEE The acclaimed playwright signed this typescript for his play The Zoo Story Typescript signed: "Edward Albee/ 1980", 22p, 8½x11, separate sheets. Headed: "THE ZOO STORY/A PLAY IN ONE SCENE". The Zoo Story was one of two of Albee's one-act plays (the other was Krapp's Last Tape) that were presented in a single program on Broadway at the Billy Rose Theatre from October 9-26, 1968. This play tells the story of two strangers (Peter, played by Donald Davis, and Jerry, portrayed by Ben Piazza in the Broadway version) meeting on a park bench in New York. The strange friendship that develops between them eventually leads to murder. This complete script of the play begins with sections on "The Players", "The Scene" and "Stage Directions". Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward F. Albee (1928-2016) is best known for his 1962 masterpiece, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? . The work, his first Broadway play, won him a Tony Award and was made into an award-winning film in 1966. He also won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play for The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?. Albee is noteworthy in the theater not only for his works, but also for his efforts to introduce new talent and techniques. The playwright taught for many years at the School of Theatre at the University of Houston, also gave writing seminars and lectures on his work at colleges around the country. Albee won Pulitzer Prizes for A Delicate Balance (1966), Seascape (1975), and Three Tall Women (1994). Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
