Cleveland Play House says
written by Christopher Durang

Runtime: 2 hours 30 minutes including one 15-minute intermission

Siblings Vanya and Sonia are contentedly discontent to pass into their twilight years sipping coffee and watching for blue herons. However, their unremarkable but stable lives are about to be upended when their fading B-movie-star sister descends upon their quiet country home with a revelation—and sexy boy toy Spike—in tow. Existential, Chekhovian despair and family-squabbling has never been as funny as in Christopher Durang’s zany, Tony Award-winning comedy that questions our ability to age gracefully in an era of iPods and Twitter.

Content Advisory: Recommended for ages 14+
Play contains: adult situations and innuendo

BEHIND-THE-SCENES: Show Me the Funny
March 28, 2015 @ 11:00am - 12:30pm
Playwright Christopher Durang’s comedy about a trio of contentedly discontent siblings may feature a sexy boytoy named Spike, but solid comic acting chops are as important as solid abs for its cast. The play’s director, Bruce Jordan (creator of the legendary Shear Madness), gives us a look at what it takes to get a laugh, and you’ll have a chance to flex your comedy muscles, too. RSVP to insidecph@clevelandplayhouse.com required. Details sent upon registration.
