Tony winner for Best Play of 2013, Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike sends up the classic dramas of Anton Chekov 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."

I believe this is a true depiction of of what most likely did happened, after the civil war. Where slaves and slave holders had to deal with the truth of what the so called masters lives were really about and the damage that was done to human beings, that were bought and placed into slavery for another persons profit and luxury.
