Synopsis: Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia 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.
Spike – (20’s/Male) A hot, buff, sexy, dumb stud. Actor must be comfortable with partial nudity and fully confident in his own skin. Be prepared for a cold reading from the script and to be seen in boxers or briefs.
Nina – (20’s/Female) A sweet, delicate, enthusiastic aspiring actress. She is a light parody of the same character in Chekhov’s The Seagull. Be prepared for a cold reading from the script.
1. Bring Headshot & Resume2. All roles other than Spike and Nina have been cast.
