January 24, 2018 – The King’s College Theater Department will present Christopher Durang’s Tony Award-winning play, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” at 7:30 p.m. on February 14-16 and 21-23 and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 17, in the George P. Maffei II Theatre.

Directed by M. Sheileen Godwin, technical professor of theatre, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” is a comedy filled with lust, rivalry, regret and the possibility of escape.

Set in present-day Bucks County, the story focuses on Vanya and his stepsister, Sonia, who have lived their entire lives in their family’s farmhouse, dedicated to taking care of their ailing parents. Their world is turned upside-down when their sister, Masha, a successful actress, suddenly returns from her worldly travels with her new boyfriend, Spike, intent on causing chaos in the quiet home.

“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” features an all-King’s cast; seniors Andrew Martinez and Dorothy Monforte, will portray Vanya and Sonia, respectively, freshman Stephanie Kleinfelder will play Masha, and sophomore Dylan Laraba will play Spike. Supporting characters include Nina, played by Mikayla Acree, and Cassandra, played by Jessica Sudano.

The George P. Maffei II Theater is located in the Administration Building on North River Street. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $7 for senior citizens, $5 for King’s alumni and non-King’s students, and free for all King’s students.
