The Country House Broadway

$67-$125

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) returns to Broadway with his tenth MTC production, a new comedy about a deeply dramatic family.

Tony and Emmy winner Blythe Danner (The Commons of Pensacola, Meet the Parents) stars as Anna Patterson, 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 romantic jealousies, outbursts and passionate soul-searching.

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 (The Columnist, Good People, Time Stands Still) directs.

THE COUNTRY HOUSE is a co-production with The Geffen Playhouse. THE COUNTRY HOUSE was commissioned by MTC through the U.S. Trust New American Play Commissioning Program. Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club.

"One of the MOST SATISFYING NEW AMERICAN PLAYS to reach Broadway in the past decade."
