Danner stars as Anna Patterson, "the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists who have gathered at their Berkshires summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival," according to MTC. "But when the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise… inciting a series of simmering jealousies, a flurry of romantic outbursts and a bout of passionate soul-searching."
Inspired by Chekhov's pastoral comedies, the production marks playwright Margulies' 10th play for MTC.
The Country House was commissioned by MTC through the U.S. Trust New American Play Commissioning Program. The play received a world premiere co-production by Geffen Playhouse and Manhattan Theatre Club at Geffen Playhouse in June.
The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Rita Ryack (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Obadiah Eaves (sound design), Peter Golub (original music) and Thomas Schall (fight director).
