Please be prepared to read from the script and tell us a funny story!
Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
Director Kenny Knox and Production Manager Shari Robinson are seeking the following:
Vanya - 50s/60s - Patient, understanding, just wants to get through the day with as little stress as possible.
Sonia - 50s - Very Eeyore-like. Feels put upon, bit of a martyr. Vanya's sister. Should be able to do a reasonable Maggie Smith imitation.
Cassandra - Any - Housekeeper. Strong belief in her psychic abilities. Like the mythical Cassandra, all her premonitions are dire warnings.
Masha - 40s - Film star. Glamorous with diva personality with honest vulnerability. Sister to Vanya and Sonia.
Spike - 20s - Masha's boy toy. Brash, provocative, self-indulgent with a tendency to be dimwitted.
Nina - 20s - Vanya's next door neighbor. Whimsical, kind, but wise in her fashion.
