    Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia live in the family home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. After spending their adulthood looking after their now-dead parents, neither has a job, so their movie star sister Masha owns the house, pays the bills, and provides money. Vanya and Sonia spend their days reflecting on their lost chances. The only other resident of the house is their cleaning person Cassandra, who is prone to making dire prophecies that no one believes. This static environment is disrupted when Masha returns home, bringing with her a much younger, gorgeous, dimwitted lover named Spike. Sonia's resentments and Masha's competitive nature begin to spark arguments, and while Vanya tries to keep the peace, he is repeatedly distracted by the preening Spike, who takes every opportunity possible to strip down and show off his muscular body. Another interloper arrives, the neighbor's pretty niece Nina, an aspiring actress who provokes envy in Masha, lust in Spike, and sympathy in Vanya. As they prepare for a costume party at an influential neighbor's house, Masha tells them she intends to sell the house, leaving Vanya and Sonia devastated. Things come to a head the day after the party: Cassandra uses a voodoo doll on Masha, trying to dissuade thoughts of selling the house; Sonia receives a phone call from a man she met at the party, requesting a date; Vanya, who is secretly writing a play is convinced by Nina to let her read it in front of the others. During the reading, Spike rudely answers a text on his phone, Vanya reacts by launching into an impassioned rant, criticizing America's cultural regression in communication and media, while fondly and wistfully recalling the surroundings and memories of his childhood. Concluding that the intent of such progress seems to make people like him feel lost and forgotten, he retreats into the kitchen in tears. VANYA –50s or 60’s Resigned to his life (more or less) at least compared to Sonia. SONIA –his stepsister, mid 40s, living with him. Discontent, upset, regretful. MASHA –his sister, 50s, glamorous movie actress who left Bucks County behind. SPIKE –an aspiring actor, 30 or younger, physically fit, self-absorbed, Masha’s traveling companion. NINA–lovely and sincere, 20s, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Her heart is set on being an actress. CASSANDRA/XANDER–housekeeper and soothsayer, 25-70's

    An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch ... who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects (a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, a slipper as pure as gold) required to break the spell. They swindle, lie to, and steal from Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel, and Jack (from the Beanstalk). Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them in Act 2, with disastrous results. A Giant (A female Giant, that is) steps down from the heavens and straight upon some beloved characters. It takes a few lives before the survivors realize that they have to act altogether in order to succeed. Thus, what begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
