Classic Stage Company will present Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country, with Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling starring as Rakitin and Natalya, respectively, beginning Jan. 9, 2015.

Performances will continue through Feb. 15. Erica Schmidt will direct.

"A Month in the Country chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son," press notes state. "But it is Natalya who soon becomes interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin, who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her."

Dinklage stars as Tyrion Lannister on "Game of Thrones." His theatre credits include the title role in Richard III at the Public Theater, Charlie Kaufman's radio play Theater of the New Ear at St. Ann's Warehouse, Things We Want by Jonathan Marc Sherman at The New Group, and Uncle Vanya at Bard Summerscape. Dinklage's film credits include "The Station Agent," "X-Men:Days of Future Past," "Death at a Funeral" and "Living in Oblivion."

Schilling currently stars in the series "Orange is the New Black." Her film work includes "The Lucky One," "The Overnight," "Stay" and "Argo."



The production will be an addition to CSC's already announced 2014-15 season, which includes Rodgers & Hammerstein's Allegro, directed by Tony Award winner John Doyle; Shakespeare's Hamlet starring Peter Sarsgaard, directed by Austin Pendleton; and Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, starring Chris Noth, directed by Andrei Belgrader.

Classic Stage Company is located at 136 East 13th Street. More information is available by calling (212) 352-3101 or visiting classicstage.org.
