''Magnificently staged… casts an entrancing spell… Angie Milliken in one of her finest performances.'' - Sydney Morning Herald

"Lindy Davies’ fine production …. She has drawn from an excellent cast high-quality performances of clarity and humour. Jenny Tate’s set is ravishing, especially in the lovingly slow transformations between acts… then there's the divine Angie Milliken as a Natalya full of contradictions: delicately strong; sentimentally manipulative; tough, fragile and beautiful; and innocently cruel. This sort of production is why we have big State Theatre Companies, with the resources to take on such a classic and get it right." - The Australian

"Directed by Lindy Davies who takes an inquiring organic approach to rehearsal and performance, the Sydney Theatre Company production is magnificently staged. There are some wonderful, conspiratorial and affectionate scenes…. Davies with finesse, draws out the tomfoolery and exuberance of youth, the pangs of conscience of those more experienced, and the yearning for love." - Sydney Morning Herald

"Davies’ production is superbly cast" - Sydney Morning Herald

"A Month in the Country casts an entrancing spell" - Sydney Morning Herald

"Blood-stirring theatre… imaginative in concept... superb in performance…" - Jewish News

"It’s theatre on its mettle `- restless, demanding, fervent and utterly compelling…" - Sun Herald
