Don’t miss Sylvia!
Our hugely fun, highly relevant and hilarious social comedy about life, love, the middle-aged mid-life itch and taking the dog for a walk in the park.
“Sharing…what some people sometimes call love… Of course, what do I know? …
I’m only a dog.”
Not bad for a talking dog! She is the only one in their marriage who really knows what they want!
New York couple Greg & Kate find after 22 comfortable years of raising kids & life in the suburbs, they are now facing empty nest syndrome, the onset of middle age and the frustrations of marriage in Manhattan. Then in wanders Sylvia, a street-smart mixture of stray lab and poodle, en route from Central Park.
Together with Sylvia, Greg and his wife discover the power of nature, the meaning of life, for men and women, a bone of contention and a whole lotta laughs.

Playmate Theatre Malmö was set up in 2017 by three British actors, living and working in Malmö, hoping to fill a niche in the local theatre scene in Skåne. We offer quality English-language theatre, small-cast intimate plays, for Swedes and international audiences.
In our first season of English language plays in Malmö, - by playwrights Alan Bennett, David Ives and Peter Shaffer - Playmate aimed to produce theatre that has wit, repartee, passion and relevance.
Like all actors we have an enormous love of words, but there is no denying the value of entertainment to an audience and the power of a good story. Some plays just sound better in their native language. Other well-loved English language plays are perhaps unfamiliar to a Scandinavian audience.
This is your chance to see them.
