TheaterWorks Silicon Valley’s regional premiere of “The Country House” is scheduled to run today through Sept. 20 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Robert Kelley directs “House,” a Chekhovian comedy/drama by Donald Margulies, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Dinner with Friends.” The play is about a famous movie star who summons her family to her Berkshires home for a summer-stock season soon overstocked with memories. The story deals with fame and art on top of the promise for romance and fading dreams.
