Lazy afternoon flirting, raucous nighttime drinking, arguments over money and politics, dramatic love triangles, sass from grandma, bawdy brawls about the meaninglessness of life, and of course a gun is pulled. Just like any family get together.
This is Vanya in a sweaty cabaret. This is a vibrant, passion-filled lark. A party of people always performing for one another. They project who they want to be — exciting, beautiful, brilliant people, dressing up ho-hum existence with a show. The desire to be loved and admired wrestles with the desire to be a good human being. Who will win?
