GAME OF THRONES and ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Stars Set to Lead CSC's A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY
Performances begin January 9, 2015 for Classic Stage Company's production of Ivan Turgenev's A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY. Directed by Erica Schmidt, the play will feature Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage and Orange Is the New Black star Taylor Schilling.
Turgenev's masterpiece chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son. Soon Natalya (Taylor Schilling) is interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin (Peter Dinklage), who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her. A beautifully nuanced meditation on the nature of unrequited love.
