Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike

Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike opened on Broadway in 2013 to great acclaim. In this deliriously funny comedy, author Christopher Durang explores the universal topics of sibling rivalry, change, and self-acceptance, as he plays fast and loose with Chekovian characters and themes Audiences who are not familiar with Chekov, as well as those who know him well, become helpless with laughter as Durang weaves his magic!

Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike

As they move inexorably into their twilight years, Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia tolerate (more or less) a quiet, peaceful life in the Bucks County, Pennsylvania, farmhouse where they grew up. As prophesied by Cassandra, the psychic house cleaner, this peace is disturbed when their movie star sister Masha returns, unannounced, with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike. As Spike calmly strips to his underwear to wade in the pond, Vanya and Sonia's world starts to change. A weekend of rivalry and regret overlaid with raucous, absurd humor begins.
