‘It’s just that I suddenly feel, I suddenly feel – help me – I suddenly feel lost. I don’t know who you are’.
A couple relocates to the country with their family; a fresh start in their new house in the middle of nowhere. But Corinne is suspicious of her husband Richard: is he telling the truth about the unconscious person he has rescued from the roadside? A stark and darkly comic dissection of a couple’s fidelity, this intriguing play is part domestic thriller, part word battle, and part game of stone/paper/scissors.
Martin Crimp is one of Britain’s most exciting and innovative contemporary playwrights – 'The Country' has been described by the Independent on Sunday as ‘a riveting piece ... by one who delights in his craft’.
