"We are proud to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank to do what we can to combat hunger in New Orleans," said Cassie Worley, Le Petit Theatre Artistic Director. "While Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike tells a humorous story about three middle-aged siblings struggling with their destinies, hunger is no laughing matter. We are proud to do our part."

Second Harvest Food Bank raises funds in support of the organization's anti-hunger mission, which involves food provision to 300 partner pantries, soup kitchens and community centers, and direct food access to individuals and families in need throughout 23 parishes in south Louisiana - the equivalent of 20 million meals in the last year. Second Harvest is the largest anti-hunger network in the state.

Vanya is hailed for its comedic insights about life and the difficulties of family relationships. Vanya and Sonia's (played by Martin Covert and Susan Shumate, respectively) musings about their stations in life are both poignant and hilarious, They are joined by their sister, Masha (played by Cassie Worley), and her boyfriend Spike (played by Jake Wynne-Wilson), Idella Johnson plays a psychic housekeeper and Sophie Amoss is the ingenue-next-door. Written by Chrisopher Durang, it won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Tickets are $30- $50. For tickets visit www.lepetittheatre.com or call 504-522-2081.
