A Month in the Country

By Brian Friel (from the original by Ivan Turgenev)
Directed by Chris Honer

A charming and lively adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's moving masterpiece. Bored with the seemingly endless tedium of her daily routine, Natalya Petrovna, the beautiful and passionate wife of a rich landowner, finds herself becoming increasingly obsessed with the youthful charms of her son's new tutor. Poetic, moving and often extremely comic, this delightful adaptation offers a fascinating insight in to Russian provincial life during the middle of the 19th Century.
