A Month in the Country
UK The Drama Library, 1855
A Month in the Country is a comedy in three acts, first produced professionally in 1872 as Mesyats v derevne. The play concerns complications that ensue when Natalya, a married woman, and Vera, her young ward, both fall in love with Belyayev, the naive young tutor of Natalya’s son. The work, which is considered Turgenev’s dramatic masterpiece, presaged the psychological realism of Anton Chekhov’s plays.
