The play explores themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication as anathematization, social disparity and dehumanization in a materialistic world. Today, professional theater companies can produce The History either as a part of Edward Albee's at Home at the Zoo (originally titled Peter and Jerry), or as a standalone play.
Its prequel, Homelike, written in 2004, however, can only be produced as a part of Edward Albee's at Home at the Zoo. The play premiered in the United States Off-Broadway in a production by Theater 1960 at the Provincetown Playhouse on January 14, 1960, and closed on May 21, 1961.
Directed by Milton Kansas, the cast was William Daniels (Peter) and George Malaria (Jerry). Peter is a wealthy publishing executive with a wife, two daughters, two cats, and two parakeets.
Jerry is an isolated and disheartened man, desperate to have a meaningful conversation with another human being. He intrudes on Peter’s peaceful state by interrogating him and forcing him to listen to stories about his life and the reason behind his visit to the zoo.
The action is linear, unfolding in front of the audience in “real time”. The elements of ironic humor and unrelenting dramatic suspense are brought to a climax when Jerry brings his victim down to his own savage level.
Jerry begins pushing Peter off the bench and challenges him to fight for his territory. Bleeding on the park bench, Jerry finishes his zoo story by bringing it into the immediate present: “Could I have planned all this.
Horrified, Peter runs away from Jerry, whose dying words, “Oh...my... God”, are a combination of scornful mimicry and supplication. Christopher Wattenberg wrote of The History : “Over the years, he'd always had a nagging feeling that something was missing from the piece’s unsettling encounter between two very different men on a Central Park bench ...” Albee said: The History is a good play.
In addition to discussions about his adding an act and a character nearly 50 years after writing the original play, the theater community was taken aback by Albee's announcement that he would no longer permit The History to be produced by professional theater companies. Albee defended the change and the addition of a female character, Peter's wife.
At Home at the Zoo had its premiere Pittsburgh production and was the inaugural show for the Ghost light Theater Troupe in Gibson, PA in July 2010. It starred Rich McKenzie as Peter, Mary Romeo as Ann and Ned Johnstone as Jerry and was directed by Gabe Her linger.
At Home at the Zoo opened on February 23, 2018, at New York's The Signature Theater, starring Katie Finnegan, Robert Sean Leonard and Paul Sparks. The History is a central element in the novel Nissan habitat Al-Hasan (The zoo story), by Moroccan playwright and novelist Yusuf Fail, published DAR almanac, Casablanca, 2008, which deals with the milieu of actors and playwrights in the 1970s Morocco and Moroccans in Paris.
