Fortune’s Fool

ff_142x226Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen, who drew praise for his performance in Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya last year, returns to the role of the Russian anti-hero in Fortune’s Fool.
The backdrop for this rarely-performed satire by Ivan Turgenev is a Russian country estate, where Kuzovkin has taken up residence following the death of his master, the former owner. The arrival of the heiress to the estate, accompanied by her new husband, threatens the status quo, leaving Kusovkin worried that he may be asked to move out.
Wealthy neighbour Tropatchov, played by Richard McCabe, plies Kuzovkin with drink over lunch, causing him to reveal a secret which has unfortunate repercussions for all concerned. Mike Poulton’s adaptation is directed by Lucy Bailey and runs at the Old Vic until Saturday 22 February 2014.
