The John W. Engeman Theater has announced the cast and creative team for VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE. Performances begin tonight, January 22, 2015 at 8:00pm and run through March 8, 2015.

Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret and the sudden possibility of escape. Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, this play by award winning playwright Christopher Durang was called "Deliriously Funny" by The New York Times.
