Bucks-County Set “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” Wins Tony for Best Play

Bucks-County native son Christopher Durang won the Tony last night for his Bucks-County-inflected Chekhov play, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.” Starring Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pearce, the play’s setting makes perfect sense. As Durang put it in his acceptance speech, “Bucks County is the perfect place for Chekhov. All these country estates – bored and upset and depressed. It’s perfect Durang country and perfect Chekhov country.”
