Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County PA, where adult siblings VANYA and SONIA reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. Their cleaning woman CASSANDRA, like her namesake, is prone to making dire prophecies that no one believes. The sudden arrival of their movie star sister, MASHA; with her sexy young boy toy, SPIKE; and their encounter with beautiful, young neighbor NINA results in a hilarious and poignant weekend of wit, absurdity, and a lot of broken mugs.
In the end, SONIA has discovered her beauty, VANYA has found his voice and MASHA has found renewed love and support from her family. The family home isn't sold and like The Three Sisters, the family trio is left alone onstage with a much happier and more hopeful outcome.
The script uses themes, names and familial situations found in the works of Chekhov. While an understanding of Chekhov might heighten the appreciation of Durang's comedy, it is not a necessity. Durang calls it a comic homage to Chekov's works, not a parody and not meant to emulate any of his works directly.
Please have some familiarity with the play. Head shot and resume appreciated but not necessary. Be prepared to list ALL scheduling conflicts at the audition. Sides will be provided.
