The Country House - TCG EDITION

3 Male, 3 Female

Donald Margulies Price: $14.95

A funny and poignant tale of love and loss from the author of the Pulitzer Prize winner Dinner With Friends

Anna Patterson - the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists - gathers her family at their Berkshire home

It's the Williamstown Theatre Summer Festival

And the anniversary of her beloved daughter's death

This family of actors wrestle with fame, art and - as always - each other

But events soon go off-script and restless egos and simmering jealousies derail the weekend

Secrets are spilled, bonds are broken

Threatening old memories, new loves, and discarded dreams

And now this family of performers must come to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives

REVIEWS

“Remarkably candid and funny” ~ Variety

“A valentine to the artists of the stage" ~ The New York Times

"One of the most disciplined and satisfying new American plays to reach Broadway in the past decade. A truly affecting play" ~ Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

"The Country House takes its mother-son rift, its themes of art and ego and unrequited love, and even its bucolic setting from Anton Chekhov, but what it most has in common with its source material is an ability to scrupulously map all the craggy contours of the human heart" ~ Mindy Farabee, L.A. Weekly

"Like Chekhov, Mr. Margulies is a specialist in rueful regrets and misty glimpses of roads not taken" ~ Ben Brantley, New York Times
