Synopsis: Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and
Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the
circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new
boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on
the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring
actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
Spike - (20's/Male) A hot, buff, sexy, dumb stud. Actor must be comfortable with partial nudity
and fully confident in his own skin. Be prepared for a cold reading from the script and to be seen
in boxers or briefs.
Nina - (20's/Female) A sweet, delicate, enthusiastic aspiring actress. She is a light parody of
the same character in Chekhov's The Seagull. Be prepared for a cold reading from the script.
