Sylvia, by A.R. Gurney

When Greg adopts a stray dog, Sylvia, his wife Kate is less than thrilled. Pet lovers and skeptics alike will recognize the pull between the love/hate dynamics in this comedy which explores not just the dynamics between a man and man’s best friend, but marriage, empty nest syndrome, communication, and more.

Directed by Topher Alan Payne
Featuring Melissa Beckwith, Jan Cartwright, Krista Schafer Ewbank, and Sean Paraventi (meet the cast!)

“Dramatic literature is stuffed with memorable love scenes, but none is as immediately delicious and dizzy as the one that begins the redeeming affair in A.R. Gurney’s new comedy, SYLVIA” NY Times. “I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen” NY Daily News. “Gurney’s mad comedy is the most endearing good time to trot down the pike in many a moon. Howlingly funny” BackStage. Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Play
