Opening August 7th!

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike Main Street Theatre Works is pleased to present Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, as well as numerous other industry awards. Itís a hilarious spoof on several of Chekhovís best known characters, from some of his best known plays including The Cherry Orchard, Uncle Vanya and The Three Sisters, but you donít need to be versed in Chekhovís work to enjoy this zany comedy.

Vanya (Allen Pontes) and Sonia (Georgann Wallace) live in the quiet farmhouse where they grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, but their peaceful life is turned upside down when their movie star sister, Masha (Julie Anchor), returns unannounced with her new boy-toy, Spike (Brian Bohlender). Masha has plans for the weekend, and plans for the old house, but things really get complicated with the arrival of a pretty, much-younger-than-Masha, aspiring actress (Janey Pintar), as well as constant interferance from Vanya and Soniaís psychic housekeeper (Tara Henry). "Riotous! The kind of full-on comedy thatís rare on Broadway! It makes you laugh out loud, and repeatedly at that!" says The New York Post. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike runs August 7th - September 5th. This play contains some mature language.
