WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Back by overwhelming popular demand is Rubicon Theatre Company's Sylvia, a howlingly funny canine comedy with a lot of doggone heart. Written by the award-winning A.R. Gurney (Love Letters), this 1995 comic masterpiece follows the love triangle connecting a couple of empty nesters (Greg and Kate) and an adorable mutt named Sylvia. Man's best friend, however, may not be exactly what a wife has in mind. Greg and Sylvia bond, leaving Kate to feel like a third wheel in her own home. As Kate and Sylvia fight for "top dog" status, Greg comes to terms with his own dissatisfactions and shortcomings. This love story offers insights into the nature of love, marriage, jealousy, and of course, dogs. Directed by Ovation Award-winning Stephanie A. Coltrin, the play stars Joseph Fuqua, Ashley Fox Linton, Stasha Surdyke, and Kevin Symons.
