Peter Dinklage (Game Of Thrones) and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black) will headline a revival of Ivan Turgenev’s A Month In The Country, off-Broadway’s Classic Stage Company announced Tuesday. The show, staged by Erica Schmidt (co-incidentally Dinklage’s wife), is slated to begin performances January 9 for a limited engagement through Sunday, February 15 at the company’s home base on East 13th Street. The dark comedy is set on an otherwise quiet country estate, where a handsome young tutor arrives to teach the son of Natalya Petrovna (Schilling). 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 (Dinklage), secretly smitten with her.
