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.  (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is recommended for ages 16+; contains mature language and sexuality.)
