In this wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mashup, 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. Winner of the 2013 Tony award for best play, this rollicking and touching comedy pays loving homage to Chekhov’s classic themes of loss and longing.
