March 16
through March 19

The deliriously funny and bittersweet work offers insights into the all too relatable family dynamics, challenges and agonies of twenty-first-century life. Everyone’s monologue and tangled web is nothing short of hilarious…

Middle-aged siblings, Vanya and Sonia, share a home and bicker over the circumstances of their lives. Resentments rise when their movie star sister, Masha, swoops in with her young new boy toy, Spike, and threatens to sell their shared Bucks County, PA house. Additionally on the scene are sassy psychic housekeeper, Cassandra, and doe-eyed aspiring actress, Nina, who’s bashful youth infuriates the domineering Masha.

This funny, rich, touching and contemporary play deals with everything from millennials to aging gracefully, the theater to Hollywood, and global warming.

Produced by Robin Aren. Directed by Bay Street Theater’s Director of Education and Community Outreach, Allen O’Reilly. The cast features Sag Harbor locals and NYC actors John Leonard as Vanya, Teresa DeBerry as Sonia, Andrea Schiavoni as Masha, Connor Tuohy as Spike, Anna Schiavoni as Nina and Catherine Bromberg as Cassandra. Set and costumes are designed with love by Andrea Schiavoni.
