That roar of laughter you hear from animal-lovers and others comes from the Delaware Theater Company (DTC), which opened its 32nd season with A.R. Gurney’s comedy, Sylvia, running through November 7, 2010. Sylvia comically examines the complicated relationships between husband and wives, and the pets that love them. The show, directed by David Stradley, tells the funny story of Greg, who brings home a dog he’s found in the park, and the ensuing adjustments he has to make to his life and marriage.
DTC has organized several fundraising events to benefit the Delaware Humane Society including “Sips with Sylvia” on October 27 at 6:30pm. Proceeds from such events will assist animals in need. Due to the mature language, this play would be best enjoyed by audience members 15 years old and up. Ticket prices range from $35-$49, depending on the performance day and time. Tickets may be purchased by calling the DTC Box Office at 302.594.1100 or in person at 200 Water Street, Wilmington and online at delawaretheatre.org.
