The Old Vic have struck gold with a brilliant production

The Observer

Closed 22 Feb 2014

A pair of newlyweds arrive at their country estate to be welcomed by Kuzovkin (William Houston), the penniless gentleman-in-residence.

Their wealthy and mischievous neighbour Tropatchov (Richard McCabe) calls in for a seemingly innocent celebratory lunch. Fuelled by champagne the party falls apart, resulting in a stunning revelation with far-reaching consequences for everybody.
