P.A.W.S. Presents "Sylvia", A comic masterpiece, Belfast this weekend.
"Sylvia" is a play about a dog, the couple who adopts her, and the drama that results. Written by A. R. Gurney and first produced in 1995, the play takes place in New York City in the 1990s. Middle-aged, upper-middle class Greg finds Sylvia, a dog played by a human, in the park and takes a liking to her. He brings her back to the empty nest he shares with Kate his wife and we see how they react to the “dog” and to each other now that another “party” has entered their home. The play is directed by P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center board member Larraine Brown who has had extensive experience in producing theatre.
100% of the proceeds will go directly to the P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center to help dogs and cats in need in the towns of Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Belfast, Northport, Searsmont, Liberty and Islesboro.
All performances take place at The Boathouse on Commercial Street in Belfast. Performances are Friday, October 26 at 8:00 PM, Saturday matinee at 3:00 PM and Saturday evening at 8:00 PM. This play is not recommended for children as there is mature theme and strong sexual language and content.
Also on Friday night of the play, there will be an animal art sale from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Boathouse.
