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.
