Current Production

  The Goat, Or Who Is Sylvia?  Tells the story of Martin—a successful architect who has just turned fifty—leads an idealized perfect life with his loving wife and gay teenage son. But after confiding to his best friend that he has been carrying on a secret affair with a goat (The titular Sylvia), he sets in motion events that will tear his life apart. Offering darkly comical takes on the nature of taboo, love, and family, this convention-challenging production asks the questions few plays dare.   “I first came across The Goat…as a student at The University of Virginia in a class on dark comedy in theater. I was attracted to the subversive nature of the material and the way that the play courageously tackles the topics that society fears discussing. That was almost a decade ago and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since.” -Jack Rakes, Director    Starring : Harold Langsam as Martin, Dawn Schimke as Stevie, Sean Prunka as Ross, and Justin Schneider as Billy.   November 30th through December 9th.  Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm.   About the playwright  Playwright Edward Albee's early popular one-acts plays, including  The Zoo Story  (1959), established him as a critic of American values. He was best known for his first full-length play  Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  (1962), a Tony Award-winning production which also became a 1966 film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
