Front row (l to r): Sarah Edwards, Chris Chiola

TAPA is thrilled to announce the cast for the upcoming, Tony Award Winning play, “Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike”, written by Christopher Durang. Directed by Robert Buckingham, this comedy opens on middle-aged siblings, Vanya and Sonia, who share a 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 boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a
lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. "Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art…deliriously funny…a heedless good time." – NY Times

The cast of “Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike” is comprised of both TAPA veterans, as well as several newcomers making their first appearance on the TAPA stage. The cast includes TAPA veterans Chris Chiola as Vanya, Sarah Edwards as Sonia, Joni Sauer-Folger as Masha, Jordan Wolfe as Spike, and Anita O’Hagan as Cassandra. Making her TAPA debut is Brianne Kephart as Nina.

“Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike” opens June 24th and runs through July 10th. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:00 pm, while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 pm. Doors open one half hour prior to curtain.
