Fortune's Fool

Mike Poulton’s adaptation of Turgenev’s savagely funny play, Fortune’s Fool, is directed by Lucy Bailey, in this new production which stars Iain Glen and Richard McCabe. 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.
