A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog, which starred Zoe Wanamaker in the title role during its West End run. Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty two years of raising their family in the suburbs. Greg’s career in finance is winding down, while Kate’s own career as an English teacher is beginning to offer her more opportunities. One day Greg brings home a dog he found while walking in the park - or rather that has found him - with only the name Sylvia on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between the couple. To Greg she offers an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknown future of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection, and Sylvia thinks that Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. Their 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.
