Stoughton Village Players
Welcome! Enjoy the Show!




Manhattanites Greg and Kate are adjusting to an empty nest. Kate's career is taking off; Greg, without kids for distraction, is stuck in a stagnating limbo of a career. His looming middle-aged crisis is averted when he rescues a clever and coquettish stray he names, Sylvia. This new found intimacy with the precocious and charismatic pup awakens a restlessness in Greg and creates an almost insurmountable marital rift.

"Sylvia" is a smart, sophisticated, and occasionally salty comedy about relationships, nature, and growing older by A.R. Gurney. Adult content - 18+ recommended.
