Greg is a man of middle age, a restless empty-nester, tired of his job in finance, looking for meaning in his life. Sylvia is an exuberant and beautiful lab/poodle mix, astray in Central Park, looking for a new home. When they meet, it is love at first sight. But his wife Kate, a busy rising star in the public school system, is looking forward to some independence now that the couple no longer has children to care for, and is less than thrilled by the clever and coquettish canine who jumps, slobbers, sits on her couch, and takes Greg’s attention away from his marriage. Wandering the streets of Manhattan with Sylvia by his side, Greg feels like he has connected to a deeper, primal, more natural side of the world. Sylvia supports these poetic musings, but can rarely focus on them for long, being more interested in flipping off the neighborhood cat, or flirting with Bowser at the dog park. Sylvia exerts such a charismatic pull that Kate’s friends are appalled, the marriage counselor advocates divorce and euthanasia, and even Greg’s new dog-owner friend warns him of the splintering effect a dog can have on the relationship between husband and wife. It is only when Greg is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice that Kate is able to see Sylvia not as a threat, but as a new member of her family. A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia is a smart, silly, sophisticated, and occasionally salty comedy about relationships, nature, and growing older.

Alban Arts Academy


The Alban Arts Academy has been educating young and old alike in the performing arts since 2010.  The academy has given hundreds of students an appreciation and understanding of Theatre.  Since its inception the Alban Arts Academy has sent 8 students to The WV Governor’s School for the Arts, seen several students pursue theatre in college and beyond, as well as a select few students working in the industry in NYC, Texas and beyond.  Our teachers have a formal education in their fields and/or several years of theatrical experience.  In an effort to make the performing arts accessible to everyone the Alban Arts Academy offers scholarships for those in need, and recently started a class designed for students with autism.  The performing arts are the most inclusive and collaborative of all the fine arts and regardless of your artistic interests or experiences the Alban Arts Academy is sure to have a class thats just right for you!  For more info and a list of our previously offered classes visit our Academy Page.  Fall 19 Registration will open in early July.
