The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?

Invite

November 10 – December 2, 2003 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes

It’s Martin’s 50th birthday, and he’s got a secret. He’s so swept away in its “engulfing disruption” that everything he thought was true and good in his life has become meaningless. Martin has lost his grip on reality, because he’s having an affair. With Sylvia. Sylvia, with her limpid brown eyes, her dainty foot that barely touches the earth, the beguiling twitch of her tail. Who wouldn’t lose his grip? And when Martin’s wife finds out, he’s going to have a lot of explaining to do. Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play, The Goat or, Who is Sylvia? is a wickedly funny tragicomedy about a seemingly happy man coming face to face with his own loneliness.
