A Splinter of Ice
June 15 - June 19£26
Moscow 1987, as the cold war begins to thaw and Britain’s greatest living novelist Graham Greene meets with his old MI6 boss, Kim Philby, Britain’s greatest spy… and traitor.
Under the watchful eye of Rufa, Kim’s Russian wife, the two men set about catching up on old times. With a new world order breaking around them how much did the writer of The Third Man know about Philby’s secret life as a spy? Did the Red Spy Philby betray his friend as well as his country?
…and who is listening-in in the next-door room?
From the writer and director of 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.
