THEATRICAL READING Edgar W. Reece Foundation and Bridget Healy present the Inland Valley Repertory Theatre’s Tuesday and Wednesday Reader’s Theater Series on June 23 and 24 at Eddie’s Pizzeria and Eatery. Sylvia is a romantic comedy by A. R. Gurney. Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. One day Greg brings home a dog he found in the park (or that has found him), bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her nametag. To Greg, she offers an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection, but in Sylvia’s view, Kate simply does not understand the relationship between man and dog. For ages 16 and over. Dinner seating at 6:30 p.m. Reading begins at 7:45 p.m. Admission is $36 and includes the reading by IVRT actors and three-course dinner, including soft beverage, tax and gratuity.
