Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in the suburbs. But what happens when a smart, sassy enchanting canine befriends Greg in Central Park? A modern romantic comedy about a marriage...and a dog, Sylvia is the funny and heartwarming comedy hit involving loyal dogs, empty nesters, and of course, true love. This comedy is a wonderful look into the complexities of love and commitment, and demonstrates what it truly means to be devoted to your partner... or, how do you choose between the love of your life and man's best friend?

This delightfully clever, fast paced comedy looks at the difficulties of relationships, and marriage. The play has some occasional strong language and frankly addresses the topics of divorce and the psychological complexities of midlife crisis. Sylvia is a touching and laugh-out-loud comedy that presents a timely message of the need to connect in an increasingly alien and impersonal world. Sylvia would captivate high school students who are prepared for the subject matter and language.
Contains adult language.
Approximate run time is 2 hours and 15 minutes (including one 15 minute intermission)
