THE COUNTRY by Martin Crimp. Richard and Corinne move to the country for a fresh start. Accustomed to a chaotic urban lifestyle, Corinne hopes that the solitude and simplicity of country life will be the answer to their marital troubles. Instead, she finds herself trapped in an urban wasteland where her husband's lies and deceit are revealed. Who is the mysterious girl lying unconscious on their couch and why did Richard bring her home? Martin Crimp's new play is a gripping, tense account of the dark side of country life and a wife's obsession with the truth.

THE COUNTRY will run from February 25-27, 2010, in the Bruce Montgomery Theatre, Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
