Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia live in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, but their peace is disturbed when their movie star sister Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy Spike. Christopher Durang has taken Anton Chekov’s 19th century Russian bourgeois dramas, put them through a meat grinder along with Greek Tragedy, Voodoo and Walt Disney and created an absurdist emotional roller-coaster comedy about an uncommon family.
Vanya – 50’s Closeted gay introverted homebody, aspiring playwright (sibling)
Sonia – 50’s Unremarkable homebody spinster, dowdy, confrontational, hostile, argumentative (sibling)
Masha – 50’s Self-absorbed, fading “B” movie star, self-loving, self-doubting wit, competitive instincts (sibling).
Spike – late 20’s Shamelessly needy, aspiring actor, hot-bodied boy toy, a hunk, male bimbo, clothing-adverse exhibitionist.
Nina – early 20’s Aspiring, enthusiastic would be actress, wide-eyed, earnest, stage struck
Cassandra 30’s – 40’s House cleaning voodoo psychic, filled with wacky gloomy prophecies
