Fresh from the success of Heart of Darkness last spring, Scandal and Gallows Theatre are back with a new staging of Gogol’s short story.
Akakiy Akakievitch loved her job much more than it loved her. An underpaid, unnoticed administrative assistant in an underfunded, unimportant government department, she was barely scraping together enough to feed herself and stave off the ferocious St. Petersburg winters. But one day – no one quite remembers when – she set her sights on a higher aspiration than any in her life so far; a new overcoat...
Hilarious and brutal, this is a modern fairy tale about a woman who never asked for much in life and didn’t even get that.
