Adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. Just when their often-wrong fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike. Sonia's resentments and Masha's competitive nature begin to spark arguments, and while Vanya tries to keep the peace, another interloper arrives: the neighbor's pretty niece Nina, who provokes envy in Masha, lust in Spike, and sympathy in Vanya. As tensions rise and insecurities grow, they are all launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. 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.
