Goliath is a visionary, lyrical, heartbreaking tale of one young man’s Iraq War story, from home to the front and back again.  Echoing the Greeks, Def Poetry and Ntozake Shange, playwright Takeo Rivera weaves a stunning ensemble exploration of war and masculinity that reaches for the mind, heart and soul. With the soldiers home from Iraq and wars still waging abroad, Goliath provides a way to look deeper into what we do during times of war, what behavior becomes excusable and what it means to love when violence is part of the norm.

written by Takeo Rivera
directed by Alex Mallory
