The Country House
opens January 20th


A brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists have gathered at their summer home during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. When the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise, inciting a series of simmering jealousies, romantic outbursts, and passionate soul-searching. Both witty and compelling, The Country House provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives.

The Village Theatre Guild presents The Country House by Donald Margulies. The production opens Friday January 20. James A. Terrill-Liesz is directing the production and Renata Allelujka is the show's producer. The cast features Susan Carr, Ellen Hill, Geoffrey Maher, Doug Orlyk, Guy Sullivan, and Tina Vorreyer.

The Country House runs from January 20 until February 11. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 PM. Sunday matinees are at 3 PM. There are also 3 PM matinees on Saturday January 28 and Saturday February 4. Tickets are $18 each. Tickets may be reserved by calling (630) 469-8230 or e-mailing tickets@villagetheatreguild.org.
