A Month in the Country


A Month in the Country (Russian: Месяц в деревне, Mesiats v derevne) is a comedy of manners play in five acts by Ivan Turgenev. It was written in France between 1848 and 1850 and was first published in 1855. The play was not staged until 1872, when it was given as a benefit performance for the Moscow actress Ekaterina Vasilyeva (1829–1877), who was keen to play the leading role of Natalya Petrovna.[1]
