Demonised by the censors when it was first published in 1850, Turgenev’s ‘A Month in the Country’ had to wait over 20 years to be performed. Now Brian Friel’s adaptation of this timeless comedy combines all of its familiar themes of youth, freedom and love with a contemporary twist.
Natasha loves the young tutor, who is loved by her pretty teenage ward, who in turn receives a marriage proposal from the creepy old neighbour. The husband is oblivious and his best mate fancies Natasha too. A month of passion, frustration and hilarity ensues. If you love Chekhov, you’ll love this version.
