Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play

The tale of a married, middle-aged architect whose life crumbles when he falls in love with a goat, the play focuses on the limits of an ostensibly liberal society. Through showing this family in crisis, Albee challenges audience members to question their own morality in the face of other social taboos including infidelity, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest and, of course, bestiality.The play also features many language games and grammatical arguments in the middle of catastrophes and existential disputes between the characters.

Edward Albee just never tires of being brilliant. The St. Louis Actors Studio has opened a production of Albee’s "The Goat: or Who is Sylvia?" It’s directed by Wayne Salomon, and it’s a stunningly beautiful piece of theatre. It is certainly the best thing I’ve ever seen at the Gaslight Theatre—and one of the best I’ve seen anywhere in some years.
