Fraught with suspense, The Country is a darkly humorous and compelling play about a doctor and his wife who move to the country with their children to start a new life, but their rustic idyll is shattered one night by the discovery of an unconscious stranger.
“Martin Crimp’s new play is an assault on the pastoral myth: the Virgilian idea of the countryside as a place of order, harmony, continuity. What Crimp shows, in this fascinatingly cryptic 90-minute piece, is the fractious disharmony of a deracinated generation less concerned with planting roses than tranferring neuroses from the city to the country.” Michael Billington THE GUARDIAN
