Review from EB in SF

A challenging and provocative play that will have you thinking about it long after it's over. Performances are generally very good, if not quite as convincing at they could be.

“Unquestionably one of the wittiest and funniest plays Albee has ever written.” -New York Post
“The play most likely to be talked about seriously-angrily, ferociously—for years to come." —Village Voice

Description

A.C.T.’s new production of this landmark and controversial play brings the powerful voice of three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward Albee back to the Geary stage for the first time in over 30 years. Martin is a middle-aged man at the pinnacle of a successful career. He has loving relationships with his brilliant wife, Stevie, and his teenage son, Billy. But suddenly Martin makes a shocking confession that changes everything. As he struggles to explain himself to his family, they all sink deeper into the awful realization that something truly terrible has happened to their beautiful world—something so far outside of “normal” that it just might destroy them. Clive Barnes of the New York Post deemed The Goat “unquestionably one of the wittiest and funniest plays Albee has ever written.” The original Broadway production won the Tony Award for best play in 2002, and was declared by the Village Voice “the play most likely to be talked about seriously—angrily, ferociously—for years to come.”
