Overview


Synopsis

The tale of a married, middle-aged architect whose life crumbles when he falls in love with a goat. The play focuses on the limits of an ostensibly liberal society. Through showing this family in crisis, Albee challenges audience members to question their own morality in the face of other social taboos including infidelity, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest and, of course, bestiality. The play also features many language games and grammatical arguments in the middle of catastrophes and existential disputes between the characters.
