Classic Stage Company's off-Broadway revival of Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country will now offer performances through February 28, extended from its previously announced closing date of February 22. Erica Schmidt directs.

Emmy Award nominees Peter Dinklage (HBO's Game of Thrones) and Taylor Schilling (Netflix's Orange Is the New Black) star as Rakitin and Natalya in the comedy of manners, first staged in 1872. The play follows the turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son. When Natalya becomes interested in tutelage of another kind, she creates an uncomfortable situation for her husband and her long-suffering friend, Rakitin, who is secretly smitten with her.

The play also stars Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Anthony Edwards (ER), Annabella Sciorra (The Sopranos), and Tony Award winner Elizabeth Franz (Death of a Salesman), along with Peter Appel, Ian Etheridge, Mike Faist, James Joseph O'Neil, Elizabeth Ramos, Thomas Jay Ryan, Frank Van Putten, and Megan West.
