Presented by Neptune Theatre Company & Tokyo International Players (TIP) Second Stage

January 21-24, 2016
@ Trance Mission Theater
Neptune Theatre Company and TIP Second Stage welcome New York Director Ross Williams, Artistic Director of NY Shakespeare Exchange and Executive Producer of The Sonnet Project, as Director of The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? winner of the 2002 Tony award for Best Play. Edward Albee's tragicomedy will also feature special guest Scenic Designer Klara Zieglerova (TONY nominated for Jersey Boys on Broadway) who will bring to life the physical world of the play. 
The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?  is the tale of an architect, Martin, his wife Stevie, and their son Billy, whose lives crumble when Martin has an extramarital affair. By showing a family in crisis, Albee challenges the audience to question their own moral judgment and taboos. The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?  focuses on adult themes; no one under 15 will be admitted into the theater.

The Neptune Theatre Company was created by two theatre artists to develop projects. In 2013 Neptune produced Tokyo Arts Week: a two-week festival of theatre, burlesque and music. If you have project in mind that calls for an umbrella then let us know, sometimes that's all it takes to get the engines started again.
