Poster First Look: Fortune’s Fool poster starring Iain Glen at the Old Vic
The poster for the Old Vic’s new production of Fortune’s Fool has been released.
Mike Poulton’s adaptation of Turgenev’s rarely performed comedy Fortune’s Fool will be directed at the Old Vic by Lucy Bailey this winter.
The play will star Iain Glen and Richard McCabe, who feature in the poster.
In the play, 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.
The show runs from 6 December 2013 to 22 February 2014 at the Old Vic.,
