Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

By Christopher Durang

Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

IN AN OLD FARMHOUSE in Bucks County, PA, Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia are living out their middle age after years of caring for their ailing, Chekhov-loving parents. It's a mild and tedious existence. That all changes once their movie-star sister Masha arrives with her twenty-something boy-toy Spike. Soon the siblings are dressing up as fairy-tale characters, channeling Maggie Smith, and dodging the voodoo curses of their soothsaying cleaning woman. Amidst the hilarity, there are moments when this family finds that good old-fashioned human connection might not be obsolete after all.
