First Look at A Month in the Country

Take a look at our Flickr profile or here on our website to see the publicity stills for our upcoming show A Month in the Country, opening Friday, March 13. The photos were taken by photographer Robin Jackson, a long-time Ross Valley Players contributor, in our own backyard. The Basket Garden in the Marin Art & Garden Center, located just behind the Barn, was the perfect setting to evoke a hot summer in the Russian countryside. Costumer Michael Berg styled the shoot.
