COMEDY AT CCT JUNE 16 – 25, 202
Caribbean Community Theatre closes its 38th season with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, a comedy by Christopher Durang (June 16 – 25, 2023).
Malerie Gleason directs the cast of Michael Baker, Allisandra Banuelos, Denise Blanchette, Wendy Keeler, Heather McRae, and Tyler Olson.
There are five performances over two weekends of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike at CCT: June 16, 17, 23 and 24, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, and one Sunday matinee at 4 PM on June 25, 2023.
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a humorous adaptation of Chekhov themes. The Broadway production won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. The story revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house. Some of the show’s elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names and sibling relationships, and the themes of old vs. new generations, real vs. assumed identities, the challenges of a woman growing older after successes in a career that seems to be ending, the hope and carelessness of youth, intrafamilial rivalries, and the possible loss of an ancestral home.
