Mrs Puntila and Her Man Matti
Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh & Citizens Theatre, Glasgow
When Argyll landowner Mrs Puntila is drunk, she's a generous and kind-hearted boss who convinces everyone they can have a bright future under her wing. When she's sober, she's a cruel and greedy tyrant. Behind the scenes, her shrewd chauffeur Matti irons out her drunken mishaps while pursuing a hopeless romance with her already-spoken-for daughter Eva.
