Theatre Arlington presents Sylvia
After 22 years of raising children in the suburbs, Greg and Kate move to Manhattan. As Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is taking off. 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. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. 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.
Appropriate for audiences aged 16 and up. Contains adult language.
