        Overcoat, The

Overcoat, The

In 1842 Gogol had an insane vision of a charisma-free bureaucrat who discovered that a new overcoat more than made up for his lack of personality. It caused a frisson in literary salons because of his groundbreaking use of words as building blocks for this disconcertingly absurd and anti-bureaucratic world. Now, more than 150 years later, the Bulgarian company Credo theatre has taken similar liberties with its theatrical language to bring his spirit back. Imagine, if you will, a tall, thin man with false eyebrows and a moustache that make him look like a cross between Groucho Marx and a walrus. His companion in absurdity is equally blessed in the moustache and eyebrow department, but this moustache is of such horizontal rigidity that it could double as a kebab stick. Watching their clowning is like watching a power relationship unfold between two children at play. Through deliberate use of the child's emotional register, they slip more easily into a world of fantasy and game playing which informs their quirky attempts to recreate Gogol's St Petersburg through puppetry.
