Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister, Sonia—along with their clairvoyant housekeeper, Cassandra—are paid a surprise visit by their movie star sibling, Masha, and her boy-toy, Spike. This zany new comedy that took Broadway by storm in 2013 borrows characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender and mixes them up–and the results are an utterly hilarious and occasionally touching story of regret, sibling rivalry, and growing older.

Grayson artist, Diana Thurmon says “I paint because I must. Art is so much a part of who I wish to be that when I am not creating a piece, I am probably visualizing one in my mind”. Being drawn to nature and its innate beauty, her subject matter is quite varied and she often varies her style to suit the subject matter. Most observers comment on the strong, vibrant colors she chooses to use. Lately Diana works mostly in acrylics but her collection includes oils, watercolors and collage also.

You don’t have to know anything about the works of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov to enjoy the hilarity of Vanya, et al. But what if you did? If you had a chance to eavesdrop on a conversation about the connections, themes and characters, wouldn’t that make the experience of seeing the play that much more rich? Yeah, we thought so too!
