Official Description

Greg, a middle-aged, empty-nester who is tired of his job in finance, is looking for meaning in his life. Sylvia, an exuberant and beautiful stray in Central Park, is looking for a new home. When they meet, it is love at first sight. Things begin to get a little “RUFF” for Greg, however, as his wife Kate is less than thrilled by the street-smart canine who jumps, slobbers, sits on her couch, and takes all of Greg’s attention. Sylvia promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect. Gurney’s Sylvia is a smart, sophisticated comedy about relationships and growing older. Whether you own a dog or just like to laugh, you will simply love Sylvia!

Run time: 1 hour, 45 minutes, with one intermission.
