Mass Music and Arts Society (MMAS) presents “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” — online for a limited time.
Written by Christopher Durang and directed by Katia Greene, "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" offers a glimpse into the hilarious lives of Vanya (Ken Carberry, Foxboro) and his adopted sister Sonia (Michelle Monti, Mansfield), who have lived quietly on the same Pennsylvania farmhouse their entire lives. Their odd — and at times, uncomfortable — relationship is disturbed by the surprise arrival of their movie-star sister, Masha (Sheila Kelleher, Plymouth), who is accompanied by her 20-something boy-toy, Spike (Michael Eckenreiter, Fairhaven).
Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra (Beth Goldman, Norwood), who can predict the future, and a lovely aspiring young actress named Nina (Alyssa Germaine, South Attleboro), whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. Laughter, tears, love, and dread ensue. (And voodoo – there may be some voodoo!)
This production started rehearsing at MMAS's Black Box Theater in Mansfield last winter, but when the pandemic forced the theater to close, the cast worked all summer to turn the play into a video presentation. Don’t miss this deliriously funny Tony Award-winning show from the comfort of your home, and support the Arts in their time of need.
