Sterling Community Theatre presents Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike!
Directed by Christine Guertin
Produced by Katie Eressy
ABOUT THE SHOW: Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County, PA, where middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, bickering and complaining about their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often wrong, fortune-telling maid Cassandra warns of impending dangers, their movie-star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, and the family is launched into a rollicking weekend eventually leading to threats to sell the house. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
