Three Days In The Country
The National Theatre does it again
Russia. A beautiful country estate. The mid-nineteenth century. A handsome new tutor brings reckless, romantic desire to an eccentric household. Over three days one summer the young and the old will learn lessons in love: first love and forbidden love, maternal love and platonic love, ridiculous love and last love. The love left unsaid and the love which must out. Ivan Turgenev’s passionate, moving comedy, A Month in the Country, has been a source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov. It's presented here in a new version by Patrick Marber whose work includes Closer and The Red Lion. The Lyttelton Theatre was named after Oliver Lyttelton, Viscount Chandos, whose parents were among the earliest effective campaigners for the National Theatre and who was himself its first chairman. It is a proscenium theatre, conventional in its basic shape though not in the excellence of its sightlines and acoustics. "Impressive. Some phenomenal acting - Mark Gatiss is perfect, Amanda Drew is splendid, John Simm is astonishing." – Time Out "Memorably vivid. Piercing, vital and ruefully funny." – The Times Not recommended for under 5s. Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes including interval.
