The Play 

Two men and four women hilariously congregate in the posh Bucks County Pennsylvania home of a now deceased couple of college professors who decided to name their children after Checkov characters, a move definitely designed to help them have normal, suburban childhoods! 

Performance dates 

Directed by Paula Bailey, performances are September 16, 17 and 18 and 23, 24 and 25. 

The Characters 

Vanya: Wry, retiring, frustrated, gay and resigned to a life dominated by caring for his aging parents, along with his adopted sister – 

Sonia: Melancholic, capricious, regretful and unsure of herself. She keeps hoping for impossible things. She and Vanya live in the ancestral home, which is paid for by their sister – 

Masha: Expansive, glamorous, haughty, frenetic. A successful and well-traveled actress, often married, who now finds herself on the edge of “once beautiful”, there with her latest boyfriend – 

Spike: A devil-may-care boy toy, sexy, sure of himself, self-absorbed and outgoing. He pays just enough attention to Masha to keep her satisfied. They are joined by – 

Cassandra: The cleaning lady, kooky and dramatic. She is a soothsayer: she sees visions, shadows of what lies ahead — but no one ever believes her, and – 

Nina: Is a young, aspiring actress. She is earnest, sincere, star-stuck, a guileless admirer of Masha. She is visiting her aunt and uncle who live next door. 

The Fun 

It’s a glorious romp with the occasional sharp edges. Come join the fun.
