The Paris Junior College Drama Department will present the romantic comedy Sylvia in October.

Found in a park one day by Greg, who is supposed to be at work, streetwise dog Sylvia is adopted, and she turns into a full-blown mid-life crisis affecting both his career and 20-year marriage.

The play by A.R. Gurney explores a long, happy marriage facing big changes. The couple’s children have gone off to college and they are expecting to enjoy new freedom.

“Sylvia becomes a very funny bone of contention between husband and wife,” said Drama Instructor Alex Peevy. “Our students have worked hard to bring the play to life and look forward to presenting it to the community. I promise you will laugh — a lot.”

Performances will be presented at the Ray Karrer Theatre Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 2-3 and Oct. 9-10 at 7 p.m., and on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. General admission is $5 or free with a PJC ID. Parental guidance for mild adult content is advised.
