Jovanka Bach's Sylvie is a play about a woman and the four men in her life who discover one another after a tragic incident. The setting opens at a hospital waiting room adjacent to an ER room. A woman with child has been shot. She is rushed to the hospital in order to save the child and to save her life. Four strange men appear one by one in the waiting room to check on her well being. Each one holds a hand written letter stating that she is pregnant. It appears that these four, attorney Jefferson Noble, clay artist Victor Eliot, wholesale linen salesman, Oscar "Rodo" Rodente, and Michael Fealtry, once had a short fling with this woman named Sylvie Prescott. Upon meeting each other, through this unfortunate circumstance, the story is then told in and out of flashbacks, on how these four became intertwined with Sylvie, a person who herself holds a mysterious background. What will become the fate of her and who exactly is the father of her (so-far) unborn child? Questions that were previously unanswered come clean as each man learns about the woman, as well as learning about all the others involved.
