Iain Glen and Richard McCabe in ‘Fortune’s Fool’ @ The Old Vic Theatre, 6 December 2013 – 22 February 2014

Iain Glen and Richard McCabe star in this new production of Tugenev’s savagely funny play, Fortune’s Fool, adapted by Mike Poulton and directed by Lucy Bailey.

A pair of newlyweds arrive at their country estate to be welcomed by Kuzovkin (Iain Glen), the penniless gentleman-in-residence. Their wealthy and mischievous neighbour Tropatchov (Richard McCabe) calls by for a seemingly innocent celebratory lunch. Fuelled by champagne the proceedings degenerate, leading to a shocking revelation with far-reaching consequences.
