Sylvia is one of A.R.Gurney’s funniest plays. Greg and Kate move back to New York city after raising two children and wanting the active life of Manhattan. Greg finds an adorable mutt while on a walk and decides to bring the pooch home. Sylvia immediately becomes an issue for Greg and Kate and begins to test their marriage in both funny and touching ways. Gurney is an expert at examining middle class life as we watch Sylvia bring Greg and Kate back on track in their new but lonely city life.
