Review: Civic’s ‘Sylvia’ a funny, insightful dog’s tale

"Sylvia…[has] the trappings of a typical culture-class comedy: There’s something inherently funny about Greg [Stephen Holcomb] and Kate’s [Allison Corn] tight-laced existence being rudely interrupted by Sylvia’s [Jennie Oliver] uncouth behavior, and the play’s most hilarious moments involve Sylvia unleashing a string of four-letter words on mischievous cats and other dogs. Director Melody Deatherage has done a good job of keeping the show’s pace from dragging, and, like an overactive dog, it’s often breathless in its energy."
