Surrey Little Theatre’s season begins tonight (Oct. 23) with A.R. Gurney’s adult comedy Sylvia, directed by Mike Busswood.
The play follows the story of a dog that invades the lives of a pair of empty nesters – becoming much more than a dog to husband Greg and serious competition for wife Kate. The matter becomes a bone of contention for the couple, if you will.
Their marriage is put in jeopardy until a series of hilarious and touching complications teach Greg and Kate to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their world.
The production features Terry Thomas and Kate Bergen, as well as Rebecca Strom as the title character. It’s the directorial debut for Busswood, and also features longtime actor Tim Driscoll, as well as character actors Kanchan Walberg and Bowen Munsil.
Sylvia Runs to Nov. 15 at the theatre (7027 184 St.), with 8 p.m. performances Thursday to Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday matinees on Nov. 2 and 9.
