Damian Lewis to star in Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?
We are delighted to announce that Ian Rickson will direct Damian Lewis in a new production of Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Previews will begin on 24 March 2017 with an official opening night on 5 April 2017.
A darkly comic and disturbing view on the collapse of familial relationships, Edward Albee’s The Goat has all of Albee’s characteristically witty tones as well as being a deeply tragic portrayal of a couple and their teenage son in crisis when the father embarks on an improbable and impossible love affair from which there is no return. Widely regarded as his late masterpiece, Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? is brought back to the London stage following Albee’s recent death.
Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? is produced by Matthew Byam Shaw, Nia Janis and Nick Salmon for Playful Productions, Tom Kirdahy and Hunter Arnold.
