Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
by Georgetown Palace Theatre

Jul. 01 - Jul. 31, 2022

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.

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.

Director: Emily Taylor

Comic genius Christopher Durang (Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All to You, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, and Betty’s Summer Vacation) creates a wildly funny farce about a self-absorbed movie star — with her 20-something boy-toy in tow — who returns to the family farmhouse to visit her brother and sister. Her arrival, and subsequent announcement, quickly turn this genial reunion into an hilarious free-for-all. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike earned the Tony Award, New York Drama Critics’ Circle, Drama League, and Drama Desk awards, all for best play of the season.

Scenic design is by Justin Dam. Lighting design is by Cheyenne Nash. Emily Taylor also property designer, costume design is by Cynthia Overton, and Gretchen Johnston is scenic artist. Mackenzie Vance is production stage manager and Claire Warkentin is assistant stage manager.
