Avila Theatre Presents: Sunday Matinee, Sylvia by A.R. Gurney

Sylvia Poster.

Goppert Performing Arts Center, 11901 Wornall Rd., Kansas City, MO 64145

The kids are away at college. The wife is at work. Lonely, detached, middle-aged Greg finds a new zest for life in Sylvia, a talking canine who lavishes him with love and adoration. Sylvia comically changes these empty-nester’s lives forever in the zany, drop-dead funny play. Sunday’s matinee begins at 2p. Tickets are free to Avila students, faculty, and staff.
