The Overcoat

Gecko Theatre Company

A accessible, wordless and brooding physical theatre piece. 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…
