Dinner & a Show – June 26-28

Brazos Theatre Group’s performance of the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play will be at the CAST, 605 Austin Ave, Waco, TX 76701, June 19-21 and again June 26-28. Add a dinner of lemon rosemary chicken or pork tenderloin and you’ve got the perfect date!
Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia live in the family home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Named after Chekhov’s characters by their theater-enthusiast professor parents, Vanya and Sonia have not had to grow up. After spending their adulthood looking after their now-dead parents, neither has a job, and money is provided by their movie star sister Masha, who owns the house and pays the bills. Vanya (who is gay) and Sonia (who is forever reminding everyone that she was adopted) spend their days reflecting on their lost chances, debating whether the grove of nine cherry trees on their property constitutes an orchard, and bemoaning their lot in life. This static environment is disrupted when Masha returns home, bringing with her a flurry of drama, an endless litany of insecurity, and a much younger, gorgeous, dimwitted lover named Spike.
