vanya-art-press-01-984x1024Horizon and Aurora theaters collaborate on this off-kilter comedy by Christopher Durang, which riffs on the work of famed dramatist Anton Chekhov. Vanya and his adopted sister, Sonia, live a quiet life in a Pennsylvania farmhouse, while their sister, Masha, travels the world as a movie star. Just as they’re issued a warning about their future, Masha returns with her boy toy, Spike, in tow. And so begins an unforgettable family reunion full of rivalry, regret and racket. The very talented Justin Anderson, Aurora’s associate artistic director, directs. The cast: Bill Murphey, Lala Cochran, Tess Malis Kincaid, Edward McCreary, Denise Arribas and Danielle Deadwyler. Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for best play.
