A Full-length Serio-Comedy in Four Scenes

1W / 3 or 4 M

Approximate Playing Time: 75 minutes

Leaning on the Theatre of the Absurd, this strange yet insightful serio-comedy takes a fish bowl view into the life of long-married Alice and Frederick.   In their shabby living room, Alice bears the brunt of Frederick’s less than sane rantings as he totters on the brink of his father’s fate; sitting and staring off into endless space occasionally muttering something about ‘goats dancing’.  The couple’s cyclical routine is disrupted by a visit from Frederick’s estranged brother, Kurt, once Alice’s lover.  During the visit war erupts over who fathered daughter Judith, believed to have been killed in a plane crash after Frederick expelled her from the house.  Kurt’s recent transformation to Christianity and his feeble attempts to reconcile the family are as off-kilter as Frederick and Alice’s reason for remaining together;  “After so many years of making each other miserable, neither of us could stand to see the other one happy.”  George A. Freek’s well-drawn characters in Goat Dance are sure to challenge your best actors while entertaining your audiences with fresh, quirky humor.  $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $50 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
