Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Written by Christopher Durang

Directed by Joy Van Camp


Named for characters in plays by Anton Chekhov, middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia (their parents were both professors and both active in community theatre), live in the family home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Vanya and Sonia have not had to grow up. They live in the house they were raised in, after spending their adulthood looking after their now-dead parents. Neither has a job, and money is provided by their sister Masha, who is a movie star, who owns the house and pays the bills. Vanya (who is gay) and Sonia (who is forever reminding everyone that she is adopted) spend their days doing nothing, reflecting on their lost chances and bemoaning their rather Chekovian lot in life. The only other resident of the house is their cleaning woman Cassandra, who, like her namesake, is prone to making dire prophecies that no one believes.

Their world is turned upside down when Masha returns home bringing her much younger dimwitted lover, Spike. Join us for this riotous reunion.
