Get the coat, get the girl, change the world!

In a futile government department reminiscent of Chaplin’s ‘Modern Times’, Akakki falls in love with the beautiful Natalia. His feelings for her are not returned; this drives him to be the best and win the ultimate office prize – the overcoat. But how far is Akakki willing to go? And at what cost?

Inspired by Gogol’s short story, The Overcoat creates an intoxicating world where a man’s thoughts and dreams spill out into everyday life…

Funded by Arts Council England. A Gecko and Lyric Hammersmith production in association with Plymouth Theatre Royal.
