The Goats Theatre Company

Why the Goats?

We are called the Goats theatre company from the greek meaning for tragedy: goats play.

Why did the Greek call their plays goats plays?

Actors re-imagine stories or moments of history and, for a brief time, live as their characters. These portrayals of the good and bad allow us to learn about our own lives. They are the scape goats who suffer so that we can learn from their mistakes. We are the Goats...
