    One thought on “Sylvia”

    1. This is very clever Husband Greg brings home a dog from the park, to wife Kate s annoyance Since this is a play, and her part is extensive, and because Greg is fixated on the dog as if she was a human and treats her as something of an alternative to his wife , the part of Sylvia is played by a human actor This is very funny, but it s also insightful about relationships, jealousies, the ways we attach to animals, about midlife crisis, and about the way that exposure to the outdoors can bring out [...]

    2. This is adorable I am such a biophile and I loved the psychoanalysis of the Greg Sylvia relationship This text is cute and funny.

    3. Fun to read Fun to watch This is a delightful fun romp A unique theatrical satire about marriage and relationships, told and enacted out partially through Sylvia the family s loveable, but obnoxious dog.At OKCCC during the late 90s, I played the role of Kate s best friend, Phyllis the lush It was a hoot

    4. So adorable but kind of sad and heartbreaking I really liked reading the voice of a dog Sylvia as a character was really important and interesting and this is a story concept I haven t seen too often but really enjoyed.

    5. Cute read Will be especially great if you love or have a dog dogs Explores dog and human relationships in a way that is tangible for humans to understand to the dog s perspectives Loved it and cried at the end Dogs are the best Also the play is a love letter to New York.

    6. Barring Shakespeare in school, this is the first play I ve read and then only because it s one of the checkmarks I need to make for a reading challenge I picked this particular play because it was referenced heavily in a book I recently read The Teachings of Shirelle Life Lessons from a Divine Knucklehead by Douglas Green and it sounded good And it IS good but I think, as a book reader, I expected Realistically, I guess, many of the best parts of this story would be added by the actors I can se [...]

    7. Interesting story on a relationship on the rocks when a married couple find themselves finally without kids at home And no, it s not because of the addition of another woman Well not exactly When Greg brings home Sylvia, a dog he bonded with in the park, it throws his world with his wife Kate for a loop Kate and Sylvia both duke it out for attention from Greg who is clearly oblivious to the problem of having two loves in his life I would love to see this play because Sylvia is actually played by [...]

    8. As someone who performed this as Sylvia, I can testify that this piece is brilliantly written and leaves many insights to be found throughout I fell in love with the piece quickly and have yet to find a way to stop quoting it all the time.

    9. A really clever script, that dips into some absurdist territory I enjoyed it but wished it would have gone farther in that territory Very affecting for dog lovers somewhat annoyed at the denouement, it felt unnecessary and cheap.

    10. Lots of fun throughout The notion of dog as mistress well what dog owner hasn t been through that The close is rather too cute and cheesy, given the actual darkness of the play.

    11. Very cute little play The world and language of dogs is a fun experience Sylvia is a very cute character and her relationship with the other characters in the play is heartwarming.
