Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
31 S. Ellsworth Naperville
Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her hunky boy-toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as residents and visitors alike get swept up in rivalry, regret, wild costume parties, voodoo dolls and the sudden possibility of escape. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a hilarious family reunion you won't soon forget! See it at Naperville's Meiley-Swallow Theatre.

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended
"...Christopher Durang's Tony Award-winning play is a perfect entertainment for a Spring evening. While not as absurd as his earlier works, this play is the product of an older, wiser, more mellow playwright, for whom life continues to inspire ideas worth sharing. It's lighthearted, often laugh-out-loud funny, and brims with bizarre characters and unexpected humor. In spite of this, Jeffrey Cass' production speaks to the audience about aging, love, global warming and the alarming way technology has taken over our lives. Durang's play rolls with the continual ebb and flow of life's drama and comedy. And while this isn't exactly Chekhov, its exploration of the same themes, albeit with a contemporary hand, is just as rewarding."
