In a New York City upper west side apartment in the 1990s we meet Greg and Kate, a middle aged, upper middle class married couple, experiencing their newly empty nest in very different ways. Tensions increase between them when Greg brings a stray dog home named Sylvia. Greg quickly becomes completely obsessed with Sylvia, causing the couple to reevaluate their marriage.

Sylvia has a timely message of the need for connection in an increasingly alien and impersonal world.

Arc Stages is a multifaceted arts organization in Pleasantville, New York, which is composed of three theatre companies under one roof.

The Educational Stage: an educational theatre company where students of all ages (youth and adult) can explore the world of theatre though a professional rehearsal process, master classes, outreach and intensive ensemble work. The Community Stage: a community theatre company for actors, singers and technicians from all walks of life that offers the best in American musicals and dramas.

The Next Stage: a professional theatre company that endeavors to produce high quality Contemporary Theatre as well as new works, cabaret, workshops and staged readings.

These three theatres, all under one roof, strive to better serve the community and its artistic needs. We are thrilled to be your artistic haven and look forward to creating more exciting, transformative theatre!
