Three Days in the Country

Three Days in the Country

by Patrick Marber, after Turgenev


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.


Patrick Marber's Three Days in the Country (after Turgenev) premiered at the National Theatre, London, in July 2015 in association with Sonia Friedman Productions.
