It's always passionate...

Natalya has a loving husband and an attentive lover, but she turns her back on both when her young son's tutor arrives for the summer, stirring within her a new-found passion. Turgenev's classic tale of passion and pathos finds a fresh voice in this lyrical adaptation by Brian Friel, Ireland's most acclaimed living playwright.
