VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE
By Christopher Durang
Jan 18--20, 25-27, 31, Feb 1-3
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, meet middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia who share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
"Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art…deliriously funny…a heedless good time." —NY Times.
"Hugely entertaining…few contemporary playwrights have proven as deft as Durang at mining both the absurdity and the dangers of human folly…in its own deliciously madcap way, the new work offers some keen insights into the challenges and agonies of twenty-first-century life." —USA Today.
