Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Previously postponed from March 2020, we are delighted to present the London premiere of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang, directed by Walter Bobbie (Tony Award-winner for Chicago), starring 2-time Olivier Award-winner Janie Dee.


Vanya and his sister Sonia live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up. But their sister Masha escaped many years ago and became a famous movie star. When Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike, so begins a rollicking weekend of rivalry, regret and all-too true premonitions.


Christopher Durang’s irresistible comedy is one of the most lauded and beloved 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, and the troubling onset of middle age, into a laugh-out loud comedy. It won the 2013 Tony Award for Best New Play.


Cast: Janie Dee, Michael Maloney, Rebecca Lacey, Charlie Maher, Lukwesa Mwamba, Sara Powell.


Creative Team: Director - Walter Bobbie, Set Designer - David Korins, Costume Designer - Emily Rebholz, Lighting Designer - Justin Townsend, Sound Designer & Original Music - Mark Bennett, Casting - Ginny Schiller.


Producers: Steven M. Levy and Vaughan Williams for Charing Cross Theatre Productions Limited and Joey Parnes.

West End Calling presents the Grand Final!

Young performers from all over the UK have gone through three rounds to earn a place in the final here at the Charing Cross Theatre. After auditioning in front of a panel of West End stars, contestants went on to perform in the regional heats which were held in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham, Norwich and Edinburgh. If they were successful here, they then had to wow our judges at the Semi-Finals held in London, Manchester and Belfast to secure their place in the Grand Final.

Each contestant will perform a song from a musical to our live audience as well as a panel made up of West End stars! It will be up to the panel to decide who they will crown as the winner of this year's competition!

The final is split into two parts - the Junior Final (4.00pm) and the Senior Final (7.00pm).
