Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Christopher Durang’s new comedic riff on some of Anton Chekov’s most time-tested themes tells the story of step-siblings Vanya (David Hyde Pierce) and Sonia (Kristine Nielsen). Although they have never left the confines of their childhood home -- a rambling farmhouse in Bucks County, PA -- they have witnessed from afar the glamorous exploits of their sister, Masha (Sigourney Weaver), a famous movie actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike (Billy Magnussen), throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Only one thing is certain: no one will get out of this without looking absolutely ridiculous!

  • “Vanya” is the title character in Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov (1860-1904). “Sonia” is Vanya's niece. “Masha” is one of Chekhov’s Three Sisters; there’s another “Masha” in The Seagull, whose first spoken words are, “I’m in mourning for my life.” Chekhov did not name any of his characters “Spike.”
  • Playwright Christopher Durang and leading lady Sigourney Weaver have been friends and frequent collaborators since they met at the Yale School of Drama in the mid-1970s.
