Sylvia
October 4-13, 2013

By A.R. Gurney
Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after 22 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, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. Sylvia promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.

Everyman
February 14-23, 2014

Everyman is an ever-contemporary classic. When Death comes for the title character, his values and accomplishments are all up for question. Along with the audience, Everyman has to ask himself whether what he thought was good really was good. This question is asked through a wryly humorous, deeply moving, and intensely human drama. Everyman is a play about every one of us, so it remains as fresh and surprising as it was when it was written half-a-millennium ago.

Fridays and Saturdays | 7:30 p.m.
Sundays | 2:00 p.m.
Black Box Theatre | Don Taft University Center
