A man bringing home a dog doesn’t sound like such a big deal – unless the dog is Sylvia, and unless the man’s wife isn’t particularly happy about the new arrangement.
A.R. Gurney’s acclaimed play “Sylvia” opened off-Broadway in 1995 and received award nominations for Outstanding Play, Outstanding Actress in a Play and Outstanding Costume Design.
Angelina College Theater will bring the play – and the dog – to life in a three-night performance running Thursday-Saturday, February 27-29 at Temple Theater. All shows start at 7:30 p.m.
Set in modern-day New York City, “Sylvia” is the story of a married couple finding their lives – and relationship – shredded like a couch cushion because of an adopted dog, prompting TheaterMania to call the play “drop-dead funny” with “an undercurrent of melancholy.”
The play contains mild adult themes.

Cast: Lindsey Dobbins (Sylvia); Davon Oliver (Greg); Michael’a Langston (Kate); Cedric Carson (Tom); Alyssa Moss (Phyllis); and Jade Wilson (Leslie).
