Theatre Arlington presents Sylvia
Theatre Arlington is kicking off 2018 with a little love, laughter and a dog named Sylvia. A.R. Gurney’s hit show, Sylvia, takes a creative spin on the all-too familiar romantic triangle. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him – bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her dog tag. Innocent and sweet, right?
But while Sylvia offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his stagnate financial trading career, this cute and irresistible little pup becomes a rival for his affection where his wife, Kate, is concerned. As she is finally enjoying a successful career as an English teacher after years of raising children, Kate feels Sylvia is eating a serious hole in their 22-year marriage. Of course, Sylvia just thinks that Kate doesn’t understand the relationship between a man and his dog.
Award-winning author Gurney has created a smart and sophisticated comedy about relationships, nature, and growing older.
