Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang
Directed by Carole Fenstermacher - Stage Manager - Natalie King |Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where adult siblings Vanya (Jay Terzis) and Sonia(Paula Keenan) reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid(Terry Libby) warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha(Hollis Galman), arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike (Daniel Meeks) who then meets Nina (Kelsey Browne), the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
