The Goat, or, Who is Sylvia? by Edward Albee, hosted by Dr. Paul Woodruff, Dean of Undergraduate Studies and professor of Philosophy
Wednesday, 12 September at 7pm, Woodruff Home (3204 Cherry Lane)
America's greatest living playwright has written this play about a falling in love, or having an epiphany, or something hard to explain. Our hero, a successful architect, is unable to communicate with his family or his best friend. How do you explain what love feels like? How much can a father love his gay son? And who is Sylvia? (Warning: Adult themes)
Paul Woodruff has written a book about theater, translated a number of Greek plays, and crafted a few plays himself. He also teaches philosophy. In spare time he designs and builds furniture, plays the cello, and rows a single on Lady Bird Lake.
