I have had the pleasure of seeing Margery Lowe create a wide range of characters in outstanding performances at several S.Florida theaters. Whether her role is intensely dramatic ("Agnes of God", "A Doll's House") to light comedy ("Blythe Spirit", "Steel Magnolias") to avandgarde ("Sandscape", "Last Exit") among many others, her indelible characters are deftly etched and layered. She even surprised audiences recently with her angelic soprano voice in "Out of the Woods".

There was an amused look that Marjorie Lowe wore throughout her one-act performance as Anne, the wife of Jerry — a character well-known to fans of the original Albee Play, Zoo Story, of which At Home is an expansion. She was exasperated with Jerry and even went through the motions of fighting with him — but she didn't really fight with him. That look on her face belied it all, and it was a look of love. In almost every line, Lowe did a masterful job of communicating her and Jerry's shared history; the words seemed to take on shades of meaning that only the two of them could understand, because of their long years of practice. Lowe's performance was understated, wise, and extremely lovely.
