Three Days in the Country is set on a beautiful Russian country estate where the arrival of a handsome new tutor brings reckless, romantic desire to an eccentric household.

“An evening of lovingly textured pleasure” – The Economist

From Patrick Marber (Closer) comes a witty, elegant update of A Month in the Country that underlines the idea that Turgenev is our contemporary.

“Painful and potent as a glass of neat, chilled vodka, downed in one” – Time Out

“…the wit of the dialogue captivates. And, as in an elegant dance, the play keeps turning on its own heel, moving between comedy and anguish, reminding us of love as an impractical joke”


– The Observer

“…emotionally eloquent and disarmingly funny, delicately fretted with melancholy”
