Prince William Little Theatre will present Christopher Durang’s Tony Award winning comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” from March 17 – March 26, 2017 at the Gregory Family Theater in the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in a hilarious mixture of sibling rivalry, jealousy, hope and regrets. A starry-eyed young actress and a kooky, voodoo-practicing housekeeper add to the riotous fun as the bickering siblings come to terms with their lives, expectations and family relationships.
The original Broadway production of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” featuring David Hyde Pierce and Sigourney Weaver, won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, and also received Tony nominations for its director and four of its actors. Additionally, the play won The Drama Dresk Award for Outstanding Play and the New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play of 2013.
