Mike Poulton's adaptation of Turgenev's savagely funny play 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.

Fortune's Fool was last produced on Broadway in 2002 with Alan Bates and Frank Langella, both winning Tony Awards. This Old Vic production marks its West End debut.

  • Mon-Sat 7.30pm; Wed & Sat 2.30pm
  • £11-£75
