Akakiy Akakievitchna was deeply devoted to her work. An underpaid, unnoticed administrative assistant in an under-funded, unimportant government department, she came to work each day only to be ridiculed by colleagues and scrape together enough to feed herself and stave off the ferocious St.Petersburg winters.

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.

A fairytale about a woman who never asked for much in life, and didn’t even get that. New dark modern staging of Gogol’s absurdist short story.

Ages 14+

“Remarkably satisfying... Punchy, witty script... Quirky, caffeinated staging... Vella: a heart-catching openness and simplicity.”
