Three Days in the Country, National Theatre

Russia. A beautiful country estate.

The mid-nineteenth century.

A handsome new tutor brings reckless, romantic desire to an eccentric household. Over three days one summer the young and the old will learn lessons in love: first love and forbidden love, maternal love and platonic love, ridiculous love and last love. The love left unsaid and the love which must out.

Ivan Turgenev’s passionate, moving comedy, A Month in the Country, has been a source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov. It’s presented here in a new version by Patrick Marber whose work includes Closer and The Red Lion.

Produced in association with Sonia Friedman Productions
