  3. Sylvia by A.R. Gurney

Sylvia features Greg, a middle-aged, empty-nester tired of his finance job and looking for meaning in his life. He finds an energetic and loveable stray, Sylvia (played by actress Allison Meyer). It is love at first sight. But Greg's wife is less than happy about the newfound mutt who jumps, slobbers, and takes Greg's attention away from his marriage. 


About Sylvia, The New York Times wrote, "Dramatic literature is stuffed with memorable love scenes, but none is as immediately delicious and dizzy as the one that begins the redeeming affair in A.R. Gurney's comedy, SYLVIA…" 

Ages: 16+ (Parental guidance suggested for strong language)
