Written by A.R. Gurney and directed by Ramona Ramdeen and Amy Hancock, Sylvia is a playful pooch who comes into the lives of empty-nesters Greg and Kate as they settle into a new phase. The middle-aged marrieds have different ideas about their new independence—Greg loves the pooch; Kate, not so much.
