Albee, Edward: 1928 - 2016

The Goat or Who is Sylvia?, 2002 - Information about the Book


  • Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play
  • Author "I chose the title The Goat or Who is Sylvia? - the goat is named Sylvia - because I wanted the double goat. There's a real goat and also a person who becomes a scapegoat. It is a play that seems to be one thing at the beginning, but the chasm opens as we go further into it. And I think it is going to shock and disgust a number of people." Interview, March, 2002
