The Country Girl

A visionary young theater director is determined to give one more chance to a once-acclaimed, now washed-up alcoholic actor. In this mission, he perceives as his main obstacle the actor’s quiet and self-effacing wife. A heartfelt tale of a love/dependency triangle told with deep psychological insight is also a moving story of failure and redemption.


“Bravo to the Stagecrafters of Chestnut Hill. Their production of Clifford Odets’ The Country Girl captures all the hidden complexity of the powerful and difficult to achieve drama.”
