Fortune's Fool

After seeing Richard McCabe in The Audience recently (playing Harold Wilson) and being completely blown away by his performance, I really would like to see him again, this time in a Russian classic:

"A pair of newly-weds arrive at their country estate to be welcomed by Kuzovkin (Patrick Cremin), 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."

I was able to bag a stalls seat for £21 :-).

Tickets can be found here:

I'm in stalls, Q34.

    loved it, Richard McCabe was a tour de force and yet again stole the show, also thought that they had translated it really well.

    Hi there. I am in the stalls row Q - the same as you Angelika but the opposite end! I won't make it for 2pm, If there is time before the performance starts I will find you to say hello, otherwise see you in the interval, and I may be able to meet for a drink afterwards.

      Hi Angelina, you never know, there might be a spare seat where I'm sitting or where you're sitting, so that we can sit together, otherwise I'll see you in the interval, as I said in my message that I sent out today, unfortunately I won't be able to join you for a drink afterwards as I have to be somewhere else.
