Neptune Theatre Company and TIP Second Stage welcome New York Director Ross Williams, Artistic Director of NY Shakespeare Exchange and Executive Producer of The Sonnet Project, as Director of The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? winner of the 2002 Tony award for Best Play. Edward Albee's tragicomedy will also feature special guest Scenic Designer Klara Zieglerova (TONY nominated for Jersey Boys on Broadway) who will bring to life the physical world of the play.
The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?
is the tale of an architect, Martin, his wife Stevie, and their son
Billy, whose lives crumble when Martin has an extramarital affair. By
showing a family in crisis, Albee challenges the audience to question
their own moral judgment and taboos. The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? focuses on adult themes; no one under 15 will be admitted into the theater.
