Brave New Productions Presents A.R Gurney's SYLVIA at MainLine Theatre This May
Empty nesters Greg (Joseph Dineen) and Kate (Carolyn Fe) have moved back to Manhattan after twenty-two years in the suburbs. As Kate tells Greg: "The dog phase of my life is definitely over." But life has a way of giving you what you think you don't want. Greg finds Sylvia (Stephanie McKenna), a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.
Directed by BNP Artistic Director Emma McQueen, "Sylvia" features an all-star cast of Montreal talent including Stephanie McKenna ("The Rocky Horror Show", "33 Variations"), Carolyn Fe ("P4W", "Far Away Tales, Close To Home"), Joseph Dineen ("Shakespeare in Hollywood", "Not Now Darling"), and Donald Rees ("Mistakes Were Made", "ART").
Featuring an original score by Ian Baird, "Sylvia" opens May 4th and runs until May 14th at Mainline Theatre (3997 Blvd St. Laurent). Tickets are $20 and are available starting April 4th, 2016 at noon via the MainLine Box Office at www.mainlinetheatre.ca and by phone at 514-849-3378.
For over ten years our mission has been to tell incredible stories - and that can take on many forms. From developing original content to exposing our audiences to international material, the one constant between all of our projects is this; we want to tell stories that inspire us personally. Inspire us to laugh. Inspire us to cry. To think. To change.
