- Sylvia: female 20 – 30, sexy, bouncy
- Greg: male 40 – 50, business like
- Kate: female 40 – 50, Greg’s wife, business like
- Tom/Phyllis/Lesile: male 30 – 50, (plays three roles 1 male, 2 female) cross dressing is a must
Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him – bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag.
A street smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog.
The marriage is put into 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.
We look forward to seeing many people at auditions and at the show!
