    "Orange is the New Black" star Taylor Schilling and "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage will unite for "A Month in the Country" at the Classic Stage Company this winter.

    If you’re looking for A-list talent on stage this season, the Classic Stage Company has you covered.

    Not only does the off-Broadway theatre have Peter Sarsgaard leading a production of “Hamlet,” and “Sex in the City” star Chris Noth in “Doctor Faustus,” but the company has recently announced a limited run production of Ivan Turgenev’s “A Month in the Country,” starring 2014 Emmy nominees Taylor Schilling (“Orange is the New Black”) and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”).

    The play begins performances Jan. 9 and will run through Feb. 15.

    Schilling will portray Natalya Petrovna, the matriarch of a country estate who has fallen for her son’s handsome young tutor. The only problem? She’s married. And her friend Rakitin (Dinklage) is also pining for her. Comedy, as you can imagine, ensues.

    “A Month in the Country” will be directed by Dinklage's wife Erica Schmidt (“Humor Abuse”), who previously directed her husband on stage in a production of “Uncle Vanya” at Bard Summerscape. It will be Schilling’s New York City stage debut.
