Winner of the 2002 Tony and Drama Desk awards, The Goat or Who Is Sylvia? is a dark comedy that focuses on the limits of an ostensibly liberal society. In a play featuring a family in crisis, playwright Edward Albee challenges audience members to question their own morality in the face of social taboos. The piece features word games and grammatical arguments in the middle of catastrophes. New York Times critic Ben Brantley noted, “Four decades after Virginia Woolf’ sent shock waves through the mainstream theater, Mr. Albee still asks questions that no other major American dramatist dares to ask.”
