SylviaA ComedyWritten by A. R. Gurney and Directed by Murray HudsonJun 6 - Jun 24, 2018
Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia, played by an actor, becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
The volunteer actors that were cast for “Sylvia” are now in rehearsals preparing for opening night on Wednesday, June 6. Included in the picture are the Director and Stage Manager. This is our seventh, and last show, of our 31st season. Seated (left to right) are Donna Hadley (Stage Manager), Ruth Shaulis (Sylvia), and Donna Watson (Kate). Standing (left to right) are Jim Manns (Tom, Leslie and Phyllis), Jim Griesmeyer (Greg), and Murray Hudson (Director).
