“If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.” E.M. Forster
Moscow, 1987. As the cold war begins to thaw, an extraordinary reunion takes place between one of the great novelists of the twentieth century, Graham Greene, and his old MI6 boss, the notorious Soviet spy, Kim Philby. It’s taken thirty years and the beginnings of a new world order.
As the two men raise their vodka glasses under the watchful eye of Philby’s last wife and Russian memoirist, Rufa, Ben Brown’s compelling political drama asks whether Philby betrayed his friend as well as his country, and how much the writer of The Third Man knew about Philby’s secret life.
“One feels for a moment the sharp touch of the icicle in the heart.”
From the writer and director team behind the award-winning West End hit play Three Days in May which inspired the Oscar Winning film Darkest Hour. Ben Brown’s coruscating new political drama explores an unlikely friendship. Yet a friendship woven of deceit as well as loyalty.
