Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage and Orange is the New Black's Taylor Schilling will both star in the Classic Stage Company's forthcoming production of Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country, directed by Erica Schmidt. Performances will begin on 9 January 2015 for a limited run until 15 February 2015.

Synopsis: "A Month In The Country chronicles the turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna's young son. But it is Natalya (Schilling) who soon becomes interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin (Dinklage), who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her."

Peter Dinklage is perhaps best known for his role of Tyrion Lannister on HBO's 'Game of Thrones', which has earned him both an Emmy and Golden Globe award. He has also appeared in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', 'The Station Agent', 'Death at a Funeral' and 'Living in Oblivion'. His other Off-Broadway credits include the title role in 'Richard III' at the Public Theater, 'Things We Want' at Acorn Theater, 'An Oak Tree' at Barrow Street Theatre, 'Evolution' at Bleecker Street Theatre, and 'Cinderella' at Playhouse 91.

Taylor Schilling can currently be seen starring in Netflix's 'Orange is the New Black' as Piper Chapman, for which she received both Emmy and Golden Globe award nominations. Her film credits include 'Argo', 'The Lucky One' and 'Stay'. This will mark her Off-Broadway debut.
