The Goat, Or Who is Sylvia

The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? is triple Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward Albee’s acclaimed play about a married, middle-aged architect who falls in love with a goat. Known for works such as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Albee’s four-hander not only shows a family in crisis, but also challenges taboos and moral judgement.

Fleur du Cap Best new director winner Mdu Kweyama (Reza de Wet’s Missing, Woza Albert) tackles this marital family drama which won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and was a finalist for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

 

A NOTE OF CAUTION TO OUR PATRONS ON
EDWARD ALBEE’S THE GOAT, OR WHO IS SYLVIA?

This is a provocative, daring and shocking production.

“It is a story of prosperity that endeth in wretchedness.”
– (Boethius’ definition on tragedy)

There are explicitly violent images involving a goat (NOT REAL) and even a deliberately horrific reference to being aroused in the presence of a baby.

It is not for the faint-hearted, but it is totally worth a visit to the theatre.

It is a stunningly brilliant work; which is intended to provoke debate, introspection and fuel arguments amongst theatre-goers for months to come.

Thank You
