Edward Albee's The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?


Martin has a marriage and life to envy. A loving wife, a loving teenage son and a celebrated career as an architect that is about to bloom even brighter with an offer to design a 27-billion-dollar dream city in the American Midwest.

Stevie loves Martin deeply, and their house is filled with wit and joy. Until…

As Martin prepares for a TV interview to salute his brilliance, he reveals a secret that could cause the pillars of that house to fall.

Edward Albee’s Tony Award-winning dark comedy masterpiece was a huge and Helpmann Award-winning success for State Theatre Company South Australia in the early 2000s. However, its tales of transgression, desire and betrayal still startle as if they were written yesterday.

This shattering new co-production with Sydney Theatre Company, directed by Mitchell Butel, stars the beloved Logie and AACTA award-winning star of Love My Way, The Secret Life Of Us and Bump, Claudia Karvan, as the fabulous and ferocious Stevie.

The New York Times said “it forces you against your will to reconsider the erotic patterns in your life”, and Variety: “Albee’s tragicomedy throws every convention into question”.

But the greatest question will linger… just who or what is Sylvia?
