What happens when infidelity strips a marriage bare?
A provocative, powerful and surprisingly funny play, from one of the twentieth century’s greatest playwrights, three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, author of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf” and “The Zoo Story”. Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Play, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Can a marriage just… vanish?
Martin, happily-married husband and father, has fallen in love with Sylvia. To his wife, this is a man who has been her everything for decades. It is who they have been forever.
He is a man with a perfect life, undone by a fatal flaw.
"You try to tell them; you try to be honest. What do they do? They laugh at you,” / Martin, successful architect, animal enthusiast
This Broadway and West End hit is Playmate Theatre Malmö’s second production of the 2018/19 season. Performed in English, with a highly experienced, all-British cast, it is Albee’s most provocative work, shocking theatregoers when it first premiered, a play that challenges its audience as much as its characters.
“How can you love me when you love so much less?”
/Stevie, the cheated wife
Husband and wife face grapple across the ruins of a marriage. How do you rebuild a family when the unthinkable happens?
Darkly comical and witty, this is a story about love and loss. What makes a family work, what makes a marriage tick and what makes married couples laugh?
What after all, was Martin expecting, when he cheated on his wife?
One man painfully traverses the ultimate taboo and asks us to re-evaluate how we see ourselves.
How far is society prepared to tolerate difference? And what after all is normal?
“If you've never seen this play before, and you're courageous, you won't regret your experience." Previous cast in the UK for “The Goat or Who is Sylvia?” includes Jonathon Price, Eddie Redmayne, and in the play’s recent revival in London in 2017 - Damian Lewis, who like Martin the architect – is an expert at playing characters with double lives.
The conversations with friends after the play are reason alone to come and watch!
