Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
By Christopher Durang
Directed by Eric Rosen
In bucolic Bucks County, PA, Vanya and his sister Sonia have frittered their lives away living in the same farmhouse where they were raised. Their quiet existence of unease and regret, however, is rocked by the arrival of their glamorous movie star sister (and landlord) Masha, and her hunky boy toy, Spike. As their visit unfolds, a lifetime of sibling rivalry explodes into a weekend of comedic pyrotechnics. Acclaimed playwright Christopher Durang (The Marriage of Bette and Boo, Sister Mary Ignatius…, Center Stage’s My America) weaves Chekhovian themes and modern wit into an unforgettable experience critics have hailed as “a sublime state of hilarity” (New York Magazine). Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a co-production with Kansas City Repertory Theatre.
