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 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. Tickets Page
“I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen…” —NY Daily News. “Gurney’s mad comedy is the most endearing good time to trot down the pike in many a moon. Howlingly funny…” —BackStage.
In addition to the regular run of Sylvia, there will be a special benefit performance on Saturday, Feb 10 (snow date Feb 17) at 2:00 p.m. sponsored by Give The Dog A Bath, a local self-service dog washing business. All proceeds from this performance will go to Missy’s Mission, Inc., a registered, non-profit organization which places homeless dogs and puppies from rescues into safe homes. Tickets for the benefit performance are $25.00 for general admission seating and can be purchased online through the Milford Arts Council website. Volunteers from Missy’s Mission will be at the theatre with several adoptable dogs/puppies for an hour prior to curtain on the day of the benefit. Tickets Page
His name is Woodson Bull III, but you can call him “Third.” And Professor Laurie Jameson is disinclined to like his jockish, jingoistic attitude. He is, as she puts it, “a walking red state.” Believing that Third’s sophisticated essay on King Lear could not possibly have been written by such a specimen, Professor Jameson reports his plagiarism to the college’s Committee of Academic Standards. But is Jameson’s accusation justified? Or is she casting Third as the villain in her own struggle with her relationships, her age and the increasingly polarized political environment? Tickets Page
“It’s the certainty of uncertainty in life that makes THIRD so affecting…THIRD exhales a gentle breath of autumn, a rueful awareness of death and of seasons past, that makes it impossible to dismiss it…A gracious air of both apology and forgiveness pervades its attitude to its characters.” —NY Times.
