WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In one of the many great scandals of Victorian England, renowned critic John Ruskin's young wife divorced him to marry his protégé, the painter John Everett Millais. The public revelations made about Ruskin, a widely respected writer who influenced Wilde and tangled with Whistler, would be surprising today; in the 19th Century, they were shattering. Yet who suffered more by airing them: Ruskin himself, or his youthful wife, known ironically to their circle as "the Countess"? Her struggle to assert her right to a normal life in the face of his manipulative deceptions makes The Countess a fascinating drama with contemporary resonances on every page. This production marks the area premiere of this long-running Off-Broadway hit.
