AUGUST 19 - SEPTEMBER 10, 2016

by A.R Gurney

A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog, Sylvia centers around Greg and Kate, a couple married twenty-two years and returning to Manhattan from the suburbs, after their children have left the nest. Greg's career in finance is winding down, while Kate's is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Their lives are turned upside down when Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives. "I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen…" —NY Daily News.  Just off a Tony nominated Broadway revival, Sylvia is a perfect opening to the Pollard Theatre's 30th Anniversary season.
