Sylvia is a feminist play set in modern-day New York that follows the story of an older couple who relate their life struggles to the adoption of Sylvia (a dog-played by a woman). The clash between Sylvia and Kate correlates to a generational divide, whereas Sylvia's relationship with Greg symbolizes his unwillingness to let go of youth. Sylvia as a character, is an outdated example of the "perfect woman" built for Greg's ideal, I was adamant that her costumes maintain a level of punk and rebellion to allow the actor to become her own women.
