Vanya: 50s to 60s, resigned to life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia. Intelligent, analytical and usually sensitive - however his rant overflows with years of pent up frustration. 

Sonia: 40s to 50s, Vanya’s adopted sister, living with him in lonely Bucks County. Discontent, upset and regretful. (Must do a decent Maggie Smith accent - complete with some physicality) 

Masha: 40s to 50s, Vanya’s sister - well known Grade-B movie star - still glamorous, but in denial about aging. Her years of self-absorption affect every personal interaction.

Spike: 29 or younger, aspiring actor - sexy, self-centered, and dimwitted - but outgoing and friendly, in a goofy sort of way. (Must be comfortable being on stage in underwear)

Cassandra: any age - ethnic, psychically endowed soothsayer - who just happens to work as a cleaning woman. Most importantly: confidence to spare. 

Nina: early 20s - all-American girl next door. Although a star struck actress - she remains sweet, sincere, and steadfastly earnest
