Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha
Vanya – He is a resident of Bucks County, PA his entire life, early 60’s, resigned to his life
Sonia – She is a resident of Bucks County, PA most of her life, adopted sister of Vanya & Masha, mid 50’s, discontented, upset, regretful with her life. She frequently uses a “Maggie Smith voice.”
Masha – She is the sister to Vanya and Sonia, glamorous and successful actress who travels the world, late 50’s, extremely self-centered
Spike – He is an aspiring actor, late 20’s, Masha’s new companioin, sexy “hunk”, self-absorbed, buto therwise outgoing and friendly, flirtatious with anyone
Nina – She is an aspiring actress, early 20’s, visiting her aunt and uncle next door to Vanya and Sonia, attractive, star-struck, sincere, earnest, and energetic
Cassandra – She is the cleaning lady for Vanya and Sonia, also a soothsayer, any age
We hope to see you there
