Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play written by comedic genius Christopher Durang. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the mediocrity of their middle-aged lives. When their successful, movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, the household is thrown into upheaval as everyone gets swept up in lust, rivalry, regret and the sudden possibility of escape.
CAUTIONS: If this were a movie it would be rated PG-13. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike includes intense adult themes, mature language and adult situations. Pre-teens and teens who watch prime-time TV won’t see much to shock them, but depending on the personality and exposure of your children, they may be confused. Your own judgment is the best guide for your family.
