Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play, The Goat portrays the family crisis of architect Martin, his wife Stevie, and their son Billy, when Martin reveals that he is having an unexpected love affair. As the tension mounts, both the family and the audience must grapple with their morality, social norms, and limits of understanding.

THE GOAT is about a profoundly unsettling subject, which for the record is not bestiality but the irrational, confounding, and convention-thwarting nature of love…. Mr. Albee still asks questions that no other major American dramatist dares to ask.” —NY Times
