Sylvia by A.R. Gurney

Sylvia is a frisky stray dog that burnt-out empty nester Greg finds in a park and brings home to his wife, Kate. Greg’s career as a stockbroker is in a tailspin, so he welcomes the distraction of dog ownership. But after a long hiatus for childrearing, Kate’s career is finally taking off, and with an active social life, a dog is the last thing she wants. (Oh, and Sylvia can talk. The humans just don’t understand her most of the time).

Funny, heartfelt and insightful, this play shows how the answers to life’s troubling questions can come from the unlikeliest of sources. Alumnae Theatre Company’s production of SYLVIA is directed by Maria Popoff, who has worked in professional theatre for many years, and is also an award-winning film producer.
