The overcoat

Akaky Akakievich is a lowly copying clerk who is teased and looked down upon by his colleagues. His only love is the letters he adoringly copies out day after day, year after year. One freezing winter he is persuaded to buy a new overcoat from a one-eyed tailor called Petrovich. His life will never be the same again.

An adaptation of Nikola Gogol’s classic tragic-comic tale The Overcoat.

"A rich, quick-witted and superbly performed ensemble production which creates more than the sum of its musical and theatrical parts"The Times

"Paul Clark's score is a delight, not so much an accompaniment to the action as a character in it" The Independent
