NEW YORK (AP) — An off-Broadway production of Ivan Turgenev’s “A Month in the Country” has attracted a star of “Game of Thrones” and another from behind bars.
Classic Stage Company said Tuesday that “Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling from “Orange Is The New Black” will co-star as Rakitin and Natalya in the revival, which kicks off Jan. 9.
The play, set on a country estate in 1840s Russia, deals with a bored, older and married woman who falls for a younger man, her son’s tutor, who is idolized by the woman’s vulnerable ward. Meanwhile, the older woman is worshipped by a long-suffering admirer.
The company’s other shows this season include William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” starring Peter Sarsgaard, and Christopher Marlowe’s “Doctor Faustus,” starring “Sex in the City” star Chris Noth.
