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

Damian Lewis and Sophie Okonedo return to the West End to star in the darkly comic masterpiece, Edward Albee’s The Goat, Or Who Is Sylvia?

Martin is at the pinnacle of life: he has a loving wife and son, a hugely successful career as an architect, and the commission of a lifetime, but when he embarks upon an improbable and impossible love affair from which there is no return, familial relationships begin to collapse.

Former Royal Court Artistic Director Ian Rickson directs this late classic that is full of Albee's characteristically sharp wit for a strictly limited season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 24 March 2017.

★★★★★‘Damian Lewis and Sophie Okonedo excel in Ian Rickson’s superb production’ – The Guardian

★★★★★ ‘Blazing brilliance. Unmissable’ – The Independent

    Absurd, in a very smart kind of way... hillarious, heart breaking, disturbing with some serious acting! catch while you can...

  • Was there a point?

    28 April 2017

    We wondered if the goat was a metaphor for something but no. Wondered if it was saying something about natural urges but no, it didn't go down that track. Then there was the mention of loneliness but it was just one line and it felt shoehorned in. Quite repetitive in regards to dialogue which made it quite dull. Marvellous acting but disappointing overall.
