Tony Award winner for Best Play of 2013, Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike sends up the classic dramas of Anton Chekhov with an absurdist tale of familial dysfunction. But, you don't have to be a Cherry Orchard scholar to appreciate this zany farce, which the Associated Press called "utterly refreshing." Vanya and his sister Sonia live a quiet life in the Bucks County farmhouse where they grew up. When their movie star sister, Masha, returns home unannounced with Spike, her 20-something boy toy, an unforgettable weekend ensues. Learn More

Saw "Assistance" Friday nite at the Wilma Theatre. It's billed as "off Broadway," but it needs a lot more work to get to Broadway. It's worth seeing for the delightful young actors and for the look at the 20-somethings' culture. But
it needs a more defined narrative arc, and a reason to care about the central characters. Still, a fun evening !!
An Off-Broadway hit comedy in 2012, Assistance is the second offering in playwright Leslye Headland’s “Seven Deadly Sins” series – this time treating greed – and comes on the heels of Bachelorette, another hit and also a feature film release. The Wilma is thrilled to announce the return of director David Kennedy, who previously directed the Wilma’s 2011 success The Understudy.
