In this wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mashup from master of comedy Christopher Durang (Betty's Summer Vacation), Vanya and Sonia's quiet, bucolic life is hilariously upended when their glamorous movie star sister arrives for the weekend with her brawny boy toy in tow. A Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation, this rollicking and touching new comedy pays loving homage to Chekhov's classic themes of loss and longing.
Approximate run time: 2 hours and 10 minutes, including one 10 minute intermission
"I'll never forget the experience of sitting among an audience overcome with the explosive laughter elicited by this hysterical riff on the work of the world's great playwrights. The brilliant Christopher Durang has written a clever and creative play, and I know our smart, Chekhov-savvy audience will find much to recognize and relish. I look forward to welcoming Christopher back to the Huntington." — Peter DuBois
"In my 20s, I read Chekhov's plays and loved them. My impetus for Vanya... was the realization that I am now the age of Chekhov's older characters. And I found myself wanting to write a comic play — not a parody, but its own thing. Set in Bucks County (PA) in the present. So I took themes and characters from Chekhov, and put them into a comic blender."— Christopher Durang
