Scott Foley, Eric Lange & More to Join Blythe Danner in THE COUNTRY HOUSE at Geffen Playhouse this Summer

Geffen Playhouse announces that Scott Foley (Scandal, The Unit, Felicity), Eric Lange (The Bridge, Weeds), David Rasche (Speed-The-Plow Broadway, Lunch Hour), Emily Swallow (The Mentalist, Manhattan Theatre Club's Romantic Poetry), and Sarah Steele (off-Broadway: Slowgirl, The Netflix Plays) are joining Tony and Emmy winner Blythe Danner in the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies's The Country House.

The Country House begins previews June 3, in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse, opening June 11. The play, a new comedy about a deeply dramatic family, marks Margulies' sixth Geffen Production, including Dinner With Friends, Coney Island Christmas, Times Stands Still, and Sight Unseen.

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. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Time Stands Still, Good People) directs.

The Country House is a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club, which will present the Broadway run of the production this fall (Previews begin September 9 for an October 2 opening night at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre) following the Geffen run. Danner will star in both the Geffen and Manhattan Theatre Club runs of the play. Additional casting for the Manhattan Theatre Club run of The Country House will be announced shortly. The Country House was commissioned by MTC through the U.S. Trust New American Play Commissioning Program.

Tickets are $37-$77 and are available in-person at the Geffen Playhouse box office, via phone at 310.208.5454 or online at www.geffenplayhouse.com.
