Koru productions are casting Edward Albee’s 2002 Tony Award winning play The Goat or Who is Sylvia? This play is a tragicomedy, which tells the story of a married, middle-aged architect whose life crumbles when his wife discovers his love affair with a goat. Through engaging with the family’s existential crisis the audience is challenged to question the limits of their own tolerance in a way that is outrageously funny and yet profoundly disturbing. The play deals with a range of social taboos including infidelity, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest and bestiality.
Roles to be cast:
Martin (45-55) : A prize winning architect at the height of his career, happily married to his loving wife Stevie and father to an openly homosexual son. Martin is intelligent witty and sincere and having an affair with a goat.
Ross (45-55) : A successful television producer, and long standing friend of the family, to whom Martin reveals his infidelity. Ross is down to earth and practical.
Billy (18-25) : Homosexual son of Martin and Stevie who has only recently come out. Billy is bright and mature and conflicted by his father’s double standards.
