Fortune's Fool at Old Vic - Iain Glen & Richard McCabe
Ivan Turgenev's Fortune's Fool is at the Old Vic Theatre from 6 Dec 2013 to 22 Feb 2014.
It is adapted by Mike Poulton, directed by Lucy Bailey, and stars Iain Glen (Kuzovkin) & Richard McCabe (Tropatchov), Alexander Vlahos, Lucy Briggs-Owen, Dyfan Dwyfor, Janet Fullerlove, Paul Ham, Richard Henders, Simon Markey.
This satire of nineteenth-century Russian society is an explosive family drama played out over the course of twenty-four hours. A pair of newlyweds arrive at their country estate to be welcomed by Kuzovkin, the penniless gentleman-in-residence. Their wealthy and mischievous neighbour Tropatchov calls by for a seemingly innocent celebratory lunch. Fuelled by champagne the proceedings degenerate, leading to a shocking revelation with far-reaching consequences.
