Pasatiempo - - MIXED MEDIA -

A fam­ily of one-up­ping ac­tors and writ­ers pop­u­lates The Coun­try House ,a play by Don­ald Mar­gulies that pre­miered at the Sa­muel J. Friedman Theater in Man­hat­tan in 2014. That pro­duc­tion starred Blythe Dan­ner in the role of ag­ing Broad­way star Anna Pat­ter­son, and re­ceived tepid crit­i­cal re­views. Red Thread Theater Santa Fe of­fers the South­west pre­miere in a pro­duc­tion di­rected by Janet David­son, open­ing at El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe (555 Camino de la Fa­milia) on Fri­day, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. Lucinda Marker takes on the role of Anna, the dys­func­tional ma­tri­arch; Todd An­der­son plays Michael As­tor, the ob­ject of ev­ery woman’s ad­vances; and JD Garfield is the strug­gling play­wright El­liot Cooper in this Chekhov-in­spired con­coc­tion. The Coun­try House runs through Nov. 29, with Fri­day and Satur­day shows at 7:30 p.m. and Sun­days at 4 p.m. Tick­ets, $20, $15 for stu­dents and se­niors, are avail­able at www.brown­pa­pertick­ or by call­ing 800-838-3006.
