A doctor and his wife move to the country to start a new life, but their rural idyll is shattered one night when he returns home with an unconscious woman he claims to have found collapsed on a rural roadside. A game of secrets and lies unveils a vivid backdrop of even greater delusion, that the countryside offers escape. Martin Crimp is one of the world’s greatest contemporary dramatists and his cryptic thriller The Country is an international success.
