Three Days In The Country description
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 – playing in the Dorfman from 3 June.
Doctor Who and Life on Mars star John Simm stars as a wandering tutor in the mid-nineteenth century who turns the lives of an eccentric household on its head, in this new adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's A Month In The Country. Produced by Sonia Friedman
