I guess Albee is crazy. My wife and I both enjoyed the play. Dialog is fantastic. Remy Bumppo's regulars were very good. Small setting worked great. Be prepared for profanity and, lets call it a frank discussion about alternative sex.

Quotes & Highlights

Watch a "Youtube clip ": The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?.


Martin is the envy of men, enjoying a hugely successful career, fulfilling marriage and well-adjusted teen-age son. But just after his 50th birthday, he boils over, confessing a love affair that confounds him and shocks his family. Unwilling to give up, his wife Stevie drags every detail onto the living room floor. 

As their world shatters, the family presses on, battling for the Martin they love. From the acclaimed author of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, this 2002 Tony Award-Winning Best Play asks where love places the limits of forgiveness. Albee’s razor wit tears open taboos and brings laughs and levity to this intimate drama.

Directed by James Bohnen

Featuring Artistic Associates Annabel Armour and Nick Sandys
