FACE TO FACE On Jan. 8

CPI_Face to Face logoFACE TO FACE
Cincinnati Playwright Initiative
Jan. 8
Aronoff Center Fifth Third Bank Theater [Downtown]

Written by David Greenburg

Staged reading of Greenberg’s no-holds-barred script, about a father with dark secrets and his self-loathing gay son in an extended slash-and- burn confrontation. Distorted Old Testament echoes and controversial contemporary Israeli issues color the decidedly disturbing proceedings.

Cast Announced for VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE ​​at CenterStage Players

CSPOH_logoCenterStage Players is please to announce the cast for their March production VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE ​​by Christopher Durang.

Featuring:

  • Cassandra: Elizabeth Hickerson
  • Masha: Peggy Allen
  • Nina: Rachel Scardina
  • Spike: Rick Hunt
  • Sonia: Bec Cole
  • Vanya: John McInerney

Director: Richard Zenk
Producer: Fred Hunt

Production Dates: March 15 – 24, 2019

Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
