The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? is Edward Albee's wittiest, funniest, and most controversial play. It's essentially about love and what kind of love is allowed in this society. The story centers on Martin, a man who has the perfect life. He's an award-winning architect with a loving wife and son. This idyllic life comes crashing down around him when he confides to his friend that he is in love with Sylvia, who happens to be a goat. This confession prompts a confrontation that will eventually change the lives of everyone in his family and leave the reader scratching their head. This play is not for the faint of heart but it is probably the most thought-provoking piece you will ever read.
