Two single siblings inside their dead parents’ house, one movie star, a grove of nine cherry trees, and one freakishly handsome lover named Spike: This is not an Anton Chekhov play. Christopher Durang hijacks characters and themes from the famed Russian playwright and forces them into a house in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania in his comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Following the siblings as they hash out their ancestral home’s uncertain future, the play may lack some of the absurdity that Durang is most famous for, but it certainly promises belly-busting laughter over love, heartache, and sibling rivalry. Familiarity with Chekhov not required. $10-$25, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, Classic Theatre of San Antonio, 1924 Fredericksburg Rd., (210) 589-8450, classictheatre.org. Through May 17. — Murphi Cook
