Synopsis:
Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two 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. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her nametag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. 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.

 

    

 

Gateway to the Future Fund

This fund has been established to cover all costs associated with finding a new performance space in Southbridge. We are currently exploring a few different options, and we are anticipating this could take at least two years to find and renovate a new permanent home. We expect the cost to do this could be upwards of $500,000. In the next year we will be holding several fundraisers, reaching out to local businesses in the area, and applying for grants. You can also donate directly on our Facebook Page. Login to your FB account, go to to FB/GatewayPlayers and The "Donate" button is located on the right, below the cover photo. All donations are tax deductible. We thank you very much for your continued support of Gateway Players Theatre.
