Masha: Kathy Zientara
Spike: Robert Lark
Cassandra: Lesa Andrick
Nina: Kelli Smith Runyon
Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike is a comedy, written by Christopher Durang, that revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged, unmarried siblings. Two of them, Vanya and his sister Sonya, live together in the family’s stone farmhouse in the middle of a cherry orchard in Bucks County, PA, and do not have jobs. The play revolves around a visit by the third sibling, a famous actress who supports them. When Masha, the famous sister, theatens to sell the house, all manner of family conflict and trickery ensues, in a very funny way, as the three face issues of family relationships, growing older and things that could have been. The cast is supported by a young wannabe actor (Masha’s “boy-toy”), a young, pretty neighbor who’s an aspiring actress, and a self-proclaimed psychic housekeeper (think clairvoyance and voodoo dolls). This play was nominated for six Tony awards, and won the 2013 Tony for Best Play. The original off-Broadway cast included Sigourney Weaver, Kristine Nielsen and David Hyde Pierce.
The show will be performed at The Decatur Civic Center on February 17-19 and February 24-26. Show times are 7:30 PM Fridays and Saturdays and 2:00 PM on Sundays. Click here to order tickets.
