“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” is one of the most lauded and beloved Broadway plays of recent years. Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, but their peace is disturbed when their movie star sister Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike. A weekend of rivalry, regret, and raucousness begins.

Those familiar with Chekhov may get a few additional chuckles from the references, but knowledge of his works is not required. Something for everyone and a lot of laughs along the way.
