All-Scottish cast lead excellent classic satire
An up-to-the minute, fast-paced version of Gogol’s great satire, Catherine Grosvenor’s sharp and hilarious translation (for Finnish companies Rhymäteatteri and Ace Productions) finds us in the world of Edinburgh banking. A fine, all-Scottish cast is led by the excellent Billy Mack as our unassuming hero, bank worker Akaky McAkaky, is hurtled through breakneck capitalist development and into the jaws of the current recession.
