The fun’s back in dysfunctional as The Suffield Players present the clever comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang on February 13, 14, 15, 21, 22, *23, 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. (*2 p.m. Matinee) at Mapleton Hall in Suffield, CT.
The Story: Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County PA where they’ve spent years bickering with each other, and caring for their demented parents, recently deceased. Dramatic movie star sister Masha swoops home for a visit with her new boy-toy Spike, and old resentments flare up. A zany soothsayer servant and a sweet innocent young actress get mixed up in the mayhem, not to mention a blue heron and some wild turkeys. If you enjoy way-out and wonderful, this is the show for you!
