Final casting is announced for the London premiere of Christopher Durang’s Tony Award-winning Best Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike starring Janie Dee.
Joining the previously announced two time Olivier award-winner Janie Dee are Michael Maloney (Ted Heath in Netflix series The Crown), Rebecca Lacey (Monarch of the Glen, Casualty) , Charlie Maher (The Glass Menagerie at The Arcola), Sara Powell (The Madness of George III at Nottingham Playhouse) and Lukwesa Mwamba (Callie in the Amazon TV series Carnival Row).
Tickets for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike are now on sale. Directed by Tony award winner Walter Bobbie (Chicago), the comedy will play an 8-week season at Charing Cross Theatre from 5 November 2021.
Christopher Durang’s irresistible comedy is one of the most lauded Broadway plays of recent years. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day concerns of celebrity, social networking, planetary upheaval and the troubling onset of middle age, into a beloved comedy.
The creative team includes scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, sound design and original musical by Mark Bennett and casting by Ginny Schiller.
The long awaited show was previously scheduled to open in March 2020 and had started rehearsals when all theatres were forced to close five days prior to its first preview.
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is booking from Friday 5 November – Saturday 8 January at Charing Cross Theatre, London.
