The Red Brick Company proudly presents: Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike!
Vanya and his sister Sonia live a dull and unproductive life in rural Pennsylvania. They are both in their fifties and never managed to leave the old family home. Like their sister Masha, a successful Hollywood actress who has been paying the bills for her siblings and their house, they were named by their professor parents after some of the disillusioned and bored characters from the plays of Russian author Anton Chekhov. So far, Sonia and Vanya seem to live up to this self-fulfilling prophecy.
When Masha pays them a visit with her new lover Spike in tow, an overly confident young actor whose brains are unable to compete with his muscles, Vanya and Sonia have to face reality: Masha is planning to sell the house and wants her siblings to leave their parental home for good. What ensues are bitter accusations and recriminations, delivered in witty dialogue at breakneck speed, and the prospect of the siblings attending a fancy costume ball at a neighbor’s house together. But when Spike invites along the neighbors' charming niece, Nina, and Sonia ventures from her well-trodden paths, the party soon rather intensifies the rifts between the siblings than bringing the much-needed distraction ...
Christopher Durang’s comedy is “a sunny play about gloomy people”, as one critic wrote, and won the 2013 Tony Award for best play. So be there or be square! Tickets: https://redbrickcompany.weebly.com/ticket-order.html
