THE GOAT OR, WHO IS SYLVIA?
by Edward Albee
"THE GOAT is about a profoundly unsettling subject... the irrational, confounding, and convention-thwarting nature of love. Powerful [and] extraordinary... Mr. Albee still asks questions that no other major American dramatist dares to ask." —The New York Times.
The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? is a full-length play written in 2000 by Edward Albee which opened on Broadway in 2002. It won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play, the 2002 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, and was a finalist for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
This is a tale of a married, middle-aged architect, Martin, his wife Stevie, and their son Billy, whose lives crumble when Martin's love is focused elsewhere. The play focuses on the limits and boundaries of loyalty and understanding. Through showing this family in crisis, Albee challenges audience members to question their own moral judgment of social taboos.
“The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
ARTISTIC & PRODUCTION
Marco DiGeorge’s love for teaching and the arts has led him to the various endeavors he is involved with today, including Co-Founder and Teacher at Truthful Acting Studios, Adjunct Professor with the UCF Film Program, Producer at Doctrine Creative, and one of the founding members and Artistic Director of Theater On The Edge. After an amazing experience producing season one with plays such as American Buffalo, Tape, and Superior Donuts, Marco recently directed the critically acclaimed Orphans and Proof in season two, and Boom for the season three opener. Marco also enjoys working side-by-side with his amazing wife, Samantha, as she continues to push the envelope with her hyper-realistic set design.
Aside from her role as Director of Operations for Truthful Acting Studios, where she takes care of all business operations, Sam’s love for creativity and design has propelled her into her new passion as Artistic Designer for Theater On The Edge, where she is also one of the founding members. Sam has a love for transforming and repurposing anything and everything artistic that she can get her hands on, and her hyper-realistic sets from season one received much acclaim, including American Buffalo's 1970s junk shop, Tape's seedy Motel 6 room, the Superior Donuts shop and a 1989 North Philadelphia row-house for the critically acclaimed Orphans. She is grateful to be a part of such a creative team and working alongside her husband Marco. She also has a huge love for owls and unicorns (not relevant but worthy of mentioning).
