The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? (Modern Classics) Paperback – 11 February 2021

Product description


Far from writing a sensationalist play about bestiality, Albee is posing serious questions about the uncontrollable nature of human sexuality. ― Guardian

The genius of the play is its refusal to pass judgement or champion a specific victim, which forces the audience to then address their own moral compass. ― London Theatre Guide
