“I am very happy that we are producing ‘Sylvia’! This is the second play of Mr. Gurney’s we will be mounting following his death last June. He was truly an amazing playwright and friend,” says Founding Artistic Director, Richard Kuranda. “Initially, we had planned on producing ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,” but the impending Broadway revival changed our plans. In hindsight, I’m glad because I think everyone could use a laugh right now!”
“Sylvia” is a hilarious romp that will leave audiences howling for more! Greg is a man of middle age, a restless empty nester who is tired of his job in finance and looking for meaning in his life. Sylvia is an exuberant and beautiful lab/poodle mix, astray in Central Park and looking for a new home. When they meet, it is love at first sight. But when Greg brings Sylvia home, his wife Kate is less than thrilled. This results in an unlikely love triangle between a man, his wife… and his dog. Love and laughter are unleashed in A.R. Gurney’s smart, silly, sophisticated and occasionally salty comedy about relationships, nature and growing older.
WSR’s production of “Sylvia” opens on May 4, 2018 and runs select dates through May 20, 2018 at Raue Center.
Saturday, May 5 from 8 pm to 10 pm
