The Country House

By Donald Margulies

Paperback £14.99

Anna Patterson, the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists, has gathered her family at their Berkshires summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival on the anniversary of her beloved daughter's death. But as restless egos and simmering jealousies derail the weekend, this family of performers must come to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives.
