The Goat, or, Who Is Sylvia?Edward Albee
Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee’s most provocative,
daring, and controversial play since Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,
The Goat won four major awards for best new play of the year (Tony,
New York Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle).
In the play, Martin, a 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.
