Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play! In Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, master of comedy Christopher Durang takes characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender, and mixes them up. Set in present-day Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia have lived their entire lives in their family’s farmhouse. While they stayed home to take care of their ailing parents, their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful movie star, leaving Vanya and Sonia to feel trapped and regretful. Their soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra keeps warning them about terrible things in the future. A sudden visit from Masha and her twenty-something boy toy Spike throws the quiet household into upheaval as everyone gets swept up into an intoxicating mixture of lust, sibling rivalry, unrequited love, regret, and the possibility of escape! Even if you don’t know your Uncle Vanya from your Seagull, you will find this hilarious and touching. Details can be found at AuburnACT.org. $12/adults, $10/students, and seniors. Tickets will be available at AuburnACT.org.
