Thursday: Opening night for “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” 

Published 6:00 am Thursday, April 27, 2017

Directed by Scott Waddell, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” opens Thursday, April 27 at the Tryon Little Theater Workshop. Written by Cristopher Durang, the original Broadway production won the Tony Award for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play in 2013.

The story-line revolves around three siblings, two of whom have led boring, uneventful lives in the family home in Bucks County, Pa., caring for their now-deceased parents. Their movie-star sister swoops in for a visit, bringing with her a much younger lover, and a whole lot of drama. Add a psychic cleaning woman and a neighbor’s star-struck visiting niece, and the result is one hilarious, yet touching vignette.

The show will run for eight performances April 27-29 and May 4-6 at 8 p.m. and at 3 p.m. on April 30 and May 7 at the Tryon Little Theater Workshop at 516 S. Trade St. in Tryon. Tickets are available online at or call 828-859-2466.
