A month in the country

The Gate stages Ivan Turgenev's five-act comedy of manners in an adaptation by Brian Friel, one of Ireland's finest living playwrights.

Set on the Islaev country estate, the play centres around the headstrong Natalya Petrovna, whose boredom with her marriage leads her to fall in love with the tutor to her son.

Things get complicated when her foster daughter Vera also falls in love with the young man. Turgenev's play was written in France between 1848 and 1850 and was first published in 1855.

The Gate version is directed by Ethan McSweeny, and stars Aislin McGuckin (Natalya) and Caoimhe O’Malley (Vera).

Mon-Sat 19.30. Sat matinees 14.30 on selected dates.
