The Circuit Playhouse to Present THE COUNTRY HOUSE

In what The New York Times calls "a valentine to the artists of the stage," a group of famous and would-be-famous creative artists have come to their summer home during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. The weekend takes an unexpected turn, and everyone is forced to come to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives.

Leading the family as matriarch Anna Patterson is Playhouse on the Square Resident Company Member, Irene Crist (All The Way; Tribes). She is joined by an extremely strong ensemble cast made up of Playhouse on the Square Resident Company Members Michael Gravois (The Other Place; Grace) as Elliot Cooper, Kim Sanders (All The Way; The Other Place) as Nell McNally, Associate Company Member Brooke Papritz (Peter Pan; American Idiot) as Susie Keegan, Barclay Roberts (Tribes; Gypsy) as Walter Keegan, and John Moore (All The Way; From Up Here) as Michael Astor. The Country House is directed by Playhouse on the Square Resident Company Member Dave Landis (The Other Place; Tribes).

The Country House runs April 22nd - May 15th, 2016 at The Circuit Playhouse. The Country House is sponsored Gene and Carol Katz. The Circuit Playhouse Inc. Super Sponsor is Dr. Thomas Ratliff. The Pay-What-You-Can Performance is Thursday, April 28th at 8pm and is sponsored by ArtsZone/AutoZone and Southland Park Gaming and Racing. The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper St. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at
