Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Christopher Durang's comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike follows the story of three siblings. 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 are swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape.
