Story by Larry Murray

Plans have been announced for The Country House, a new comedy by Donald Margulies, whose story takes place at a Berkshire summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Starring Blythe Danner, it will open this June at the Geffen Playhouse in LA, then move to Roundabout Theatre in New York City in September.

A press announcement noted that it is the sixth production at the Geffen Playhouse for Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies (Coney Island Christmas, Times Stands Still, Sight Unseen). The Country House is a new comedy about a deeply dramatic family and begins previews June 3 (opening night is June 11).

Tony and Emmy winner Blythe Danner (The Commons of Pensacola, Meet the Parents) stars as Anna Patterson, the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists who have gathered at their Berkshires summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. But when the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise… inciting a series of simmering jealousies, a flurry of romantic outbursts and a bout of passionate soul-searching.
