Royal Court Jerwood Downstairs, London, SW1W 8AS
  • “You all know something weird’s going on” 

    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. 

    At The Royal Court Theatre from 24 November to 30 December 2017, book your Goats tickets today.
