If you were the parent of a high school student and found out that your child was involved with a play at school that uses vulgar sexual expressions and portrays sex with a goat, would you be upset and concerned?
Some parents of Cactus Shadows High School in Carefree, Arizona are, but you may be surprised at the reaction they are receiving.
The play is The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? by Edward Albee. The main character, Martin, falls in love with a goat and has a sexual affair with it, which causes all kinds of problems for Martin’s wife and son. The play first appeared on Broadway in 2002 and opened in London in 2004. Not everything performed on Broadway or in London is morally worth seeing let alone being performed by teenagers in high school.
