The Dorset Players in association with GSK, Northshire Bookstore, Rug Crazy and Up For Breakfast, present A. R. Gurney’s “Sylvia.” The original production was a Drama Desk nominee for best play when it opened in New York in 1995. The play is a comedy and tells the story of an empty nester couple, Greg and Kate who have recently moved from the suburbs to New York City. Kate is passionately reinventing herself as a teacher of Shakespeare while Greg, on the other hand, has become disillusioned with the corporate world and wants out. During a day spent in Central Park he meets Sylvia, a stray dog, who he brings her home. As Greg becomes increasingly attached to Sylvia, Kate’s dislike of the dog intensifies. An unusual love triangle emerges. The characters of Tom, a fellow dog walker in Central Park, Phyllis, a former classmate from Vassar and Leslie the psychotherapist who counsels Greg and Kate, round out the cast, each offering their own take on the situation.

This memoir documents the fascinating, funny, and sometimes bizarre strategies one woman uses in her lifelong quest to find herself, find inner peace and healing. She logs 15,000 hours journeying through different remedies, from New Age/alternative to the odd and extreme. The Book of Help traces one woman’s life-long quest for love, connection, and peace of mind. A heartbreakingly vulnerable and tragically funny memoir-in-remedies, Megan Griswold’s narrative spans four decades and six continents –– from the glaciers of Patagonia and the psycho-tropics of Brazil, to academia, the Ivy League, and the study of Eastern medicine. Megan was born into a family who enthusiastically embraced the offerings of New Age California culture –– at seven she asked Santa for her first mantra and by twelve she was taking weekend workshops on personal growth. But later, when her newly-wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say he’s landed in jail, Megan must accept that her many certificates, degrees and licenses had not been the finish line she’d once imagined them to be, but instead the preliminary training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life. Megan Griswold went to Barnard College, received an....
