The above is somewhat of a précis of the plot of The Zoo Story, the contribution to the Provincetown double-bill of a young Villager, and comer, named Edward Albee. He knows how to handle a situation and dialogue and bring you up deftly to the edge of your seat. Whether he has anything less sick than this to say remains to be seen.
The production of The Zoo Story is on a par with that of Krapps Last Tape. William Daniels and George Maharis are sharp, subtle, and excellently right for their roles of Ivy League type and Societys Scourge. The direction of Milton Katselas helps them in every way. In sum, an evening to jostle the nerve-ends and thank God for off-Broadways non-conformism.
