A theatrical family grapples with fame vs art, mismatched love, buried secrets, explosive jealousies and the search for acceptance - in this charming, funny emotional rollercoaster

About The Country House

A summer house of actors and creative souls, gathered together during the Williamstown Theater Festival. This charming and emotionally compelling comedy/drama explores and exposes a family of performers – as they grapple with simmering jealousies, parental love, envy, romantic longing and the search for art, fame and acceptance. Playwright Margulies won the Pulitzer Prize for Dinner With Friends and his incisive wit, bold conflicts and humanity are present here.



“The Country House takes its mother-son rift, its theme of art and ego and unrequited love, and even its bucolic setting from Anton Chekhov, but what it has most in common with its source material is an ability to scrupulously map all the contours of the human heart.” 

LA Weekly



“A valentine to the theater…there are laughs aplenty.”

The Huffington Post



“The Country House is one of the most satisfying new American plays to reach Broadway in the past decade… a truly affecting play”.
