Inspired by Chekhov's pastoral comedies, this witty and compelling new play provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other’s lives. Anna Patterson is the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists who have gathered at their Berkshires summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. But when the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise… inciting a series of simmering jealousies, a flurry of romantic outbursts and a bout of passionate soul-searching.

For The Record:

"The Country House" is a co-production with The Geffen Playhouse, which presentid the Los Angeles run of the production (June 3 – July 13, 2014).  It was commissioned by MTC through the U.S. Trust New American Play Commissioning Program.
