Vanya and Sonia have devoted their adult lives to caring for their aging parents, while sister Masha flitted about the world living the carefree life of a successful Hollywood actress. When Masha brings her latest boy toy, Spike, to the family home for a weekend rendezvous, tensions rise as long-held sibling resentments bubble to the surface. Throw in a costume party, a clairvoyant housekeeper, and a gentleman caller and Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike proves uproarious, touching, and completely irresistible.
