Next up in our 45th season is Sylvia, A.R. Gurney’s popular and quirky comedy. When Greg meets Sylvia – a stray dog – in a park in New York, he takes a liking to her and decides to bring her home. However, Greg’s wife Kate does not share his fondness for Sylvia. As Greg’s love for Sylvia grows, a romantic triangle of sorts forms between Greg, Kate and Sylvia. Will Sylvia stay in her new home? Will Greg and Kate stay married?
Gurney’s play has become legendary for its hilarious exploration of the relationships humans form with their pets. With Sylvia portrayed by a human actor, the laughs abound as the unfolding story explores love and relationships of all kinds. Funny, sweet and very much geared towards adults (in both language and content), the course of this play changes everyone involved.

Our production is directed by Rebecca Poole, who originally brought Sylvia to the Blue Hill stage 6 years ago. Leanne Nickon played Sylvia in that production and returns in this production as Kate. Randall Simons is Greg. Matt Murphy plays Tom, Phyllis & Leslie. And Nina Robinson-Poole prances and preens across the stage as the incomparable Sylvia.
