Is every page of your copy of "Marley & Me" dog-eared? Still cry at the end of "Old Yeller?" Talk to your dog?

Man's best friend talks back and then some in A.R. Gurney's comedy "Sylvia," the season opener of The Actors' Group. The story? Manhattan financier Greg stumbles into a love affair when his wife takes on a new career. The punch line? The other woman's a dog, baby!

At 7:30 tonight through Saturday; 4 p.m. Sunday. Runs until Aug. 13 at the Yellow Brick Studio, 625 Keawe St. 550-8457, www.taghawaii.org.
