Summary

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.

Patrick Marber’s Three Days in the Country premiered at the National Theatre, London, in July 2015 in association with Sonia Friedman Productions.
