Fortune's FoolA pair of newlyweds are welcomed back to their country estate by the poor gentleman-in-residence, Kuzovkin, in Fortune's Fool which makes its West End debut at the Old Vic this winter. Iain Glen (Downton Abbey villain Sir Richard Carlisle) stars as Kuzovkin and Richard McCabe (Harold Wilson in The Audience) plays Tropatchov, his wealthy neighbour who calls round for a celebratory lunch. But as the drink flows, the day's proceedings begin to degenerate, leading to a shock revelation. Find great deals on theatre tickets.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
