Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike


  • Dakota Stage Ltd 412 East Main Avenue Bismarck, ND, 58501 United States (map)

March 15-17 & 22-25, 2018

A Tony Award winning comedy!

The master of comedy, Christopher Durang, is at his best with this hilarious play that centers on the reunion of the glamorous actress Masha and her middle-aged siblings at their childhood home in Bucks County, PA. While Vanya and Sonia stayed home to care for their ailing parents, Masha traveled the world. As her fame fades, so do her funds. Masha swoops in with her boy toy Spike with threats to sell the family home and sends the normally quiet house into utter upheaval. Add a maid who can predict the future and a neighbor who is a lovely (and young) aspiring actress, and everyone is quickly swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Think your family is crazy? Wait until you meet Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike!

"Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art…deliriously funny…a heedless good time." —NY Times.

“You've only spent a weekend with these people, but you might want to spend the rest of your life with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike."—Huffington Post
