Day 5 of our 12 Plays of Christmas giveaway is brought to you by The London Royal Court who are offering 2 tickets to go and see their production of Goats on a date of your choice!
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.
“Has anyone ever told the truth? Has anyone ever demanded it? Does anyone want it? Does anyone even need it?”
Goats is a major new work by Syrian playwright and documentary filmmaker Liwaa Yazji exploring the lies we choose to believe as a society, and the rippling effect when one man questions the ‘truth’.
It has been developed as part of the Royal Court’s long-term project with writers from Syria and Lebanon. Royal Court Associate Director Hamish Pirie (Violence & Son, Who Cares, Teh Internet is Serious Business) directs.
Take a look at some of the goats from Goats below…
