Competition: Win tickets to see Three Days in the Country at the National Theatre

by -

Summer Love…

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.

Ivan Turgenev’s passionate, moving comedy, A Month in the Country, has been a source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov. It’s presented here in a new version by Patrick Marber whose work includes Closer and The Red Lion – playing in the Dorfman from 3 June. Three Days in the Country stars John Simm (Life on Mars and Mad Dogs) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen and Game of Thrones) and runs at the National Theatre until 21 October 21.
