Goats (Theatre)

Goats (Theatre): In a small town in Syria, soldiers are celebrated as heroes and grieving families are nourished on propaganda. As the coffins pile up, the local party leader decides on a radical compensation scheme: a goat for each son martyred. Questioning what is true and what is not, Goats is a major new work by Syrian playwright and documentary filmmaker Liwaa Yazji that has been developed as part of the Royal Court’s long term project with writers from Syria and Lebanon. Directed by the Royal Court Associate Director Hamish Pirie and having been translated by Katharine Halls, the run will be from 24 November-30 December, 2017 at the Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Square, London SW1W 8AS.
