Richard and Corinne have moved to the country –
To get away from the city …
Martin Crimp’s The Country is a highly compelling and sexually charged drama that uncovers the darker side of the country idyll. This gripping play unearths the desire, deceit and power struggles that lie beneath.

Annabelle Comyn … brings all her experience of working with precise, detailed writing to bear on this production, creating a gripping, tense evocation of a relationship … the focus here is on a single text and three actors, and under Comyn’s direction Fiona Bell and Declan Conlon are pitch perfectsunday tribune
Comyn directs with a relentless, almost Brechtian detachment that is entirely courageous … and there is no room for simulation: the actors blaze with reality
