About Fortune's Fool


A new production of Turgenev’s savagely funny play, Fortune’s Fool, is adapted by Mike Poulton and directed by Lucy Bailey.
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.


‘The Old Vic have struck gold with a brilliant production’ The Observer *****

‘Wonderfully funny and deeply touching’ The Daily Telegraph *****

‘A bold and boozy delight. It’s fabulous’ The Times ****
