More About This Textbook

Overview

Comedy / 8 m., 5 f., 1 c. / Int./ext.

A bored wife living in the Russian countryside falls in love with her little boy's handsome new tutor, just like all of the women in the household. The wife's chief rival turns out to be her 17 year old ward; they make a wonderful portrait of two different women in love. "What a charming play.... The workmanship is carefully wrought. The lines of characterization are fine.... It seems like a breath of fresh air." N.Y. Times.

FEE: $75 per performance.

Translated and introduced by Isaiah Berlin.

Editorial Reviews

New Yorker
...his lines have the rueful wit of a man who has seen much of the world and who shakes his head compassionately over how rarely any of its inhabitants achieve a finish worthy of their beginnings.
Irish Times
...a marvelously rich evening of theatre...
NY Times
A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY is a jewel of a play...
Irish Independent
A MASTERLY TRIUMPH...sensitive...superlative...impeccable...
NY Post
What a remarkable play!...It has all the freshness, that thrust of a new century's thought, which we associate with Chekhov or Gorky.
TheaterWeek
This adaptation's language, tone, personalities, and even themes are clearly Friel's...sharp...funny...a unique sound and compelling depth. Turgenev's classic is energized, more entertaining, fresher.
