The role of Mrs Puntila will be taken by beloved Scottish actor Elaine C. Smith. Lyceum favouriteSteven McNicoll (Rhinoceros, An Edinburgh Christmas Carol, The Belle's Stratagem) returns as her put-upon servant. DOT Theatre’s Murat Daltaban returns to direct this entertaining class-conscious comedy after his barn-storming production of Rhinoceros for The Lyceum.
