Patrick Marber directs his own new version of Turgenev's A Month in the Country.
The cast includes Amanda Drew, Gawn Grainger, John Simm and Cherrelle Skeete.
Ivan Turgenev's passionate, moving comedy has been the source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov.
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.
