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
