Stage Door: A Month in the Country

Chekov, like Flaubert, was a fan of Ivan Turgenev, a 19th-century Russian writer whose short stories about the feudal system first put him on the literary map. He was keen on the psychological life of his characters, especially evident in the often-performed A Month In The Country, now off-Broadway at CSC.

The play, set in the 1840s, addresses jealousy, youth and the vagaries of love. "The heart of another is a dark forest," muses Rakitin (Peter Dinklage), the best friend of Natalya and her husband Arkady (Anthony Edwards), a rich landowner.
