About the event
Written by Christopher Durang
Director: Patrick Brownson
Stage Manager: Eric Shand
Middle-aged siblings Vanya (Kevin R Leonard) and Sonia (Jenn Bass) share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha (Janine K Kehlenbach), swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike (Taylor Minckley). Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra (Shashauna Staton), who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina (Leah Marshall), whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
“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.
“Everyone has a monologue that is nothing short of hilarious. (You’ll find yourself using that word a lot.)…You’ve only spent a weekend with these people, but you might want to spend the rest of your life with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike."—Huffington Post.
