In a tag team, husband-wife/director-producer effort, Langley City residents Mike and Cathe Busswood are lowering the curtain on what they call a tremendously successful run of an adult comedy.
The show, A.R. Gurneyâ€™s play Sylvia, was brought to the stage this fall by Surrey Little Theatre. It opened in late October and wraps up this Saturday.
It is Mikeâ€™s first step into the directorâ€™s seat, leading a cast of six in this humour story about a dog â€“ named Sylvia.
â€œThe dog invades the lives of a couple just starting to enjoy life since the children have left home. Through a series of hilarious and touching complications, the dog, Sylvia, becomes more than just a dog to Greg and competition to his wife Kate,â€ explained Mike, a retired electrician who followed his wife and daughters into community theatre many years ago.
Mike was recently on the SLT stage for the first time in a different role. He played Angus in The Drawer Boy, which earned him the best actor award at Theatre BCâ€™s regional competition.
While Sylvia has been a virtual sellout, Mike said there were rumoured to still be tickets available for Friday. Info: 604-576-8451 or online at: brownpapertickets.com.
