A romantic comedy which A. R. Gurney opened on Broadway in May 1995, about a Manhattan couple, living alone together for the first time in years, until the husband brings home a stray dog.

Sylvia is young, frisky and hates cats. She's adorable, loyal and tidy. In fact, Sylvia is a dog. Middle-aged businessman Greg stumbles upon Sylvia in the park and it's love at first sight. But it's also a case of "two's company, three's a crowd" a Greg's wife Kate realizes that Sylvia is chewing a hole in their marriage. The New York Times called Sylvia "a hysterical comedy for anyone who's ever owned a dog, loved a dog, or wanted to wring a dog's neck..." This delightful romantic comedy will warm the hearts of dog lovers and theater goers alike.

Sylvia looks at what happens to the lives of a middleaged couple when the husband brings home a cute, little, poodle-Lab mix named Sylvia. The dog becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife until a series of hilarious and touching complications lead the couple to compromise. Sylvia ultimately unites the family.
