Weathervane Playhouse brings to the stage Christopher Durang’s Tony Award-winning comedy, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” a show that reminds us that “you can’t pick your family.”
Set in a country home in Bucks County PA, Vanya and his sister, Sonia, lead uneventful and claustrophobic lives. The second sister, Masha, a famous actress who is more than slightly over-the-hill has brought her latest “Boy Toy” along for a weekend visit, as well as carrying a secret that could upend the entire family. To add to the mix, there is a clairvoyant cleaning lady and a lovely young aspiring actress.
“I love plays that are wonderfully comical and witty and wild,” said Director Eileen Moushey in describing the play. “But even more, I am drawn to plays that have a ‘sweet center’ to them. These are very amusing characters, although each is discontented with their lives. It takes a wild weekend of sibling rivalry for them to reach a new sense of fulfillment and a very satisfying conclusion.”
“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” runs from April 21 through May 8, 2016. Tickets are $22 for adults, $10 for children (17 and younger) and $11 for college students. Senior discounts are available on Thursdays and matiness for $20. Tickets can be purchased at weathervaneplayhouse.com or by calling the box office at 330-836-2626.
Winner of not only the Tony Award for Best Play 2013, but also the Drama Desk – Outstanding Play, New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award – Best Play, Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Play.
