A Provincial Lady (Russian: Провинциалка, Provintsialka) is a one-act play by Ivan Turgenev. Written in 1850, it was first produced in January 1851 at a benefit performance for the seminal 19th-century Russian actor Mikhail Shchepkin at the Maly Theatre in Moscow.

In the 20th century, the play was produced at the world-famous Moscow Art Theatre as part of a triple bill of works by Turgenev. Constantin Stanislavski directed and played Count Liubin. It opened on 5 March 1912.
