Blythe Danner (Tony Award for Butterflies Are Free) stars in The Country House, a play inspired by playwright Anton Chekhov’s pastoral comedies. The Country House comes to Broadway after a six-week run in Los Angeles. Written by Donald Margulies, who won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Dinner with Friends, the play is a witty and insightful chronicle of a family of performers who are attempting to understand and cope with the roles they play in each other’s lives.

    Anna Patterson Blythe Danner


    Author Donald Margulies Director Daniel Sullivan

    The Country House transports Chekhov from Russia to a Berkshire summerhouse. The play focuses on Anna Patterson, the matriarch of a family of famous and hoping-to-be-famous creative artists. The family has gathered during the Williamstown Theatre Festival to enjoy a simple weekend. But when the unexpected occurs, the entire troupe is forced to improvise as passionate soul-searching, romantic interludes, and slowly boiling jealousies occupy an unpredictable summer weekend.
