Given the popularity of A. R. Gurney’s play, Sylvia, it is hard to believe that it was rejected many times before it was first produced on Broadway. Missing his grown children and dissatisfied with his job, Greg bonds with Sylvia, a dog who jumps into his lap while he is sitting on a park bench. His wife is not thrilled when he brings the dog home. Since in the play, the dog is embodied by an attractive young woman, it is understandable. The production of the play at the Dorset Players is delightful. Its only flaw is that it just plays for two weekends and you don’t want to miss it. After listening to our discussion of the production, contact the Dorset Players for tickets.
