Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike
About Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike
Families are crazy...funny. This one quibbles about the relationships - and dysfunctions - among siblings. Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, while their sister Masha has travelled the world as a successful actress. When Masha returns with her 20-something boy toy Spike, the household is thrown into utter chaos as the siblings are suddenly forced to confront long held rivalries, regrets, and the sudden possibility of escape.
Inspired by the work of Anton Chekhov, Christopher Durang (one of the comedic giants of Broadway) uses this play to comment on age, entitlement, and social media; all the presence of overwhelming, ridiculous comedy. A poignant and raucous play that is pure joy from start to finish.
The original production won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.
This is a regional, professional theater production.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
