Audition – Vayna and Sonia and Masha and Spike

December 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The play involves late-middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia, who share the family 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 20-something boy toy, Spike. A weekend of rivalry, regret, resentment, and raucousness begins, eventually leading to threats to sell the house and the family property, including a small orchard. Also on the scene are Cassandra, a sassy and cynical housekeeper who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.

Characters: Three siblings. One hot mess.
Vanya: 50s–60s, lives in Bucks County with Sonia, his adopted sister; resigned to his life, more or less—at least compared to Sonia.
Sonia: 50s–60s, Vanya and Masha’s adopted sister; lives in Bucks County with Vanya; discontented, upset, regretful.
Masha: 50s-60s, Vanya and Sonia’s sister; a B-list movie actress who gallivants around the world.
Spike: 20s, Masha’s new companion; an aspiring actor who’s very attractive, buff, and very self-absorbed. Actors auditioning for Spike should wear a tee shirt to auditions.
Nina: 20s, niece of Vanya and Sonia’s neighbors; an energetic and sincere would-be actress who is starstruck by Masha.
Cassandra: Any age, Vanya and Sonia’s odd housekeeper; a soothsayer who often makes ominous predictions.
