Goats is a major new work by Syrian playwright and documentary filmmaker Liwaa Yazjim 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.

“They’re leading us on, they’re conning us. Open the coffins!” 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.

Goats was first staged as a reading in the Royal Jerwood Theatre Downstairs as part of Told From The Inside: new plays from Syria and Lebanon in March 2016, and now returns to the venue this winter.

Age Recommendation: 14+
