Kentwood Players proudly presents “VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE,” a comedy by Christopher Durang.
Kentwood Players, one of the longest continuously operating Los Angeles theater groups, is pleased to announce the re-opening of “VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE,” a comedy by Christopher Durang at the newly upgraded Westchester Playhouse. Originally slated to open in March 2020, the cast has been rehearsing virtually since the shutdown began immediately after their final dress rehearsal, and is very excited to finally be back onstage!
Christopher Durang’s hilarious comedy “VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE” received multiple theatrical honors, including the Tony Award for Best Play in 2013. Set in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia live a quiet life in the farmhouse where they grew up and cared for their elderly parents, while 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 her 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, the toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age combine into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
This is a non-equity/all-volunteer production directed by Susan Stangl, produced by Alison Boole and Myron Klafter for Kentwood Players by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. The cast features Chris Morrison (Vanya), Valerie Sullivan (Sonia), Sarilee Kahn (Masha), Giovanni Navarro and Jeff Dewitt (Spike), Susan Stangl (Cassandra) and Isabella Petrini (Nina).
The following COVID-19 Safety Protocols will be observed at the Westchester Playhouse:
