20181107 STC Sylvia flyerSouth Texas College Theatre presents A. R. Gurney’s play “Sylvia” from Nov 15-18 at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Main Stage Theater, located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

The production will begin at 8 p.m. Nov. 15, 16 and 17 and there will be a 2 p.m. matiness on Nov. 18.

The production is the story of Greg and Kate, who have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities.
One day, Greg brings home a dog found in the park bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her nametag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major cause of disagreement between husband and wife.

For Greg, Sylvia offers an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age, but for Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

General admission tickets are $10. Student, faculty, military, and senior citizen are $5. The play contains mature language and adult themes. Parental discretion is advised. Ticket sales from the Nov. 15 production will go toward the Dr. John F. Carroll Drama Scholarship. The Nov. 18 matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language.

Ticket cash purchases can be purchased one hour before the performance at the box office, or in advance online using a credit or debit card at .
