The Woy Woy Little Theatre’s next production will be Sylvia.

It opens at Peninsula Theatre on Friday, April 27, with performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm on Sundays for three weeks as well as a bonus 2pm matinee on the final Saturday.

In the comedy written by AR Gurney, a middle aged couple
relocates from the suburbs of New York, empty nest syndrome hits hard, but it is only when husband Greg brings home a stray dog that things really heat up.

“Woy Woy Little Theatre’s second play of the 2018 season
features four of the Coast’s more experienced actors: Susannah Bonnor, Duncan Mitchell, Kellie Martin and Mark Austin,” said publicity officer Ms Terry Collins said.

“Working in the genre for which the is most famous, Gurney puts the spotlight on upper middle class America, pulling no punches and giving us a delightful script which examines multiple themes, including dedication to work versus life balance, the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership and the trials which hit a marriage when the kids have left home,” she added.

Ms Jan Grounds directs her first full production for the company, following years of experience directing school plays and working with various amateur theatre companies in Sydney.

“I just love this play,” she said. “I think every member of the
audience will thoroughly enjoy it“I am blessed to have a great
crew supporting me in bringing it to life.

With husband, Mr Lloyd Grounds on light and sound, she
promises some technical surprises and interesting lighting bound to enhance the production.

Running the show from backstage will be long-time company members Ms Christine Cherry and Ms Leanne Faulkner.

“Sylvia is a laugh a minute play with themes to make you think and should not be missed,” Ms Collins said.
