"A must-see. Chock-a-block full of wit. One of the most enjoyable plays you'll get to see in Cape Town this year. A colourful, mischievous and thoroughly satirical production wherer anything can (and will) happen." Steyn Du Toit - Cape Times "Fascinating. Gloriously rich. Under the direction of Bobby Heaney, this diverse cast puts on a triumphant performance. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is set to become a benchmark comedy for years to come." Samantha Orange - WhatsoninCapeTownTheatre on the Bay is excited to welcome BOBBY HEANEY back to the stage as the director of CHRISTOPHER DURANG's wonderful new comedy, which swept the boards during the 2013 Broadway award season, garnering not only the coveted Tony but also New York Drama Critics' Circle, Drama League, Drama Desk and Off Broadway Alliance awards.

"Go and see this satire on the human condition for the smart dialogue and the stellar South African cast — they give the stars of the Broadway production, Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce, a serious run for their money!" Christina Kennedy - Business Day Live
"Beautifully directed, wonderfully acted and incredibly designed. The performances make it a must see on your theatre rounds - lots of fun and so worthy of being called art." Chris Avant Smith - bsharpentertainment.co.za.
"Intelligently written. Engaging fun. The play is awash with acute sentiment and genuine angst and is constantly amusing. The tom-foolery that ensues is sculpted with precision timing which adds to the wonderfully comic element of the production." Peter Feldman - Artslink
"Deliriously funny!" New York Times
"The hottest ticket in town. It is ambitious and clever and attention sustaining and hilarious! I don't remember the last time I actually doubled over with laughter, pounding my fist on my thigh for good measure as the lines and laughs built and built." Huffington Post
"A comic tour de force about a bunch of Chekhovian characters full of yearning. I haven't wanted to simultaneously laugh and cry this much since … Chekhov." Village Voice
"Both breathtakingly funny and quietly poignant, this Chekhov-inspired work (for which knowledge of the Russian master's plays is not a requirement) is pure joy from start to finish." Backstage
“Hugely entertaining.” USA today
