"Dorset Players presents 'Sylvia'"

The Dorset Players in association with GSK, Northshire Bookstore, Rug Crazy and Up For Breakfast, present A. R. Gurney's "Sylvia." The original production was a Drama Desk nominee for best play when it opened in New York in 1995. The play is a comedy and tells the story of an empty nester couple, Greg and Kate who have recently moved from the suburbs to New York City. Kate is passionately reinventing herself as a teacher of Shakespeare while Greg, on the other hand, has become disillustioned with the corporate world and wants out. During a day spent in Central Park he meets Sylvia, a stray dog, who he brings her home. As Greg becomes increasingly attached to Sylvia, Kate's dislike of the dog intensifies. An unusual love triangle emerges. The characters of Tom, a fellow dog walker in Central Park, Phyllis, a former classmate from Vassar and Leslie the psychotherapist who counsels Greg and Kate, round out the cast, each offering their own take on the situation. The play at times is hilariously funny and at others, very tender, as it explores the trials of marriage and the bond between a man and his dog.

Performances are at the Dorset Playhouse 104 Cheny Rd., March 1, 2, 8, 9 at 7:30 and March 3, 10 at 2:00.
