Directed by Erica Schmidt, performances of Ivan Turgenev's classic will continue through Feb. 22.

Dinklage and Schilling co-star as Rakitin and Natalya, respectively, in a cast that also includes Anthony Edwards ("ER") as Arkady, Annabella Sciorra ("The Sopranos") as Lizaveta and Tony Award winner Elizabeth Franz (Death of A Salesman) as Anna.

Completing the cast are Peter Appel, Ian Etheridge, Mike Faist, James Joseph O'Neil, Elizabeth Ramos, Thomas Jay Ryan, Frank Van Putten and Megan West.

"A Month in the Country chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son," press notes state. "But it is Natalya who soon becomes interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin, who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her."

Scenic design is by Mark Wendland, costume design is by Tom Broecker, lighting design is by Jeff Croiter and sound design is by Bart Fasbender.

Classic Stage Company is located at 136 East 13th Street. More information is available by calling (212) 352-3101 or visiting
