Edward Albee's shockingly funny THE GOAT or Who is Sylvia? is a very subversively funny play that defies any categorization and we can't wait to share it with you.
Albee dishes up what is quite possibly the most provocative love story ever told. Here's the scoop:
Martin—a hugely successful architect who has just turned fifty—leads an ostensibly ideal life with his loving wife and gay teenage son. But when he confides to his best friend that he is also in love with a goat (named Sylvia), he sets in motion events that will destroy his family and leave his life in tatters.
This shockingly funny play about marital infidelity and the devastation of a family from America’s great provocateur Edward Albee is directed by Cap T artistic director Mark Pickell and features the talents of Austin All-Stars Robert Pierson, Rebecca Robinson, Tim Blackwood, and Preston Ruess.
“As challenging- and...as outrageously funny as theater gets”
- The New York Post
“Powerful [and] extraordinary...Mr. Albee still asks questions that no other major American dramatists dares to ask”
– New York Times
WARNING: THE GOAT contains provocative subject matter.
