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

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

‘Blazing brilliance. Unmissable’
The Independent

Damian Lewis and Sophie Okonedo are joined by Jason Hughes and newcomer Archie Madekwe in the Tony Award-winning, 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, he must face the dizzying, explosive consequences.

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

Set & Costume Designer – Rae Smith
Lighting Designer – Neil Austin
Original Score by – PJ Harvey
Sound Designer – Gregory Clarke
Casting Director – Amy Ball CDG
