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, the cold war begins to thaw. After declining his offer for more than 30 years England's greatest living novelist Graham Greene is finally permitted to meet his old MI6 boss, Kim Philby, Britain's greatest ever spy... and traitor.

Under the watchful eye of 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 the room next door?

From the writer and director of the award-winning West End his 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. 

"One feels for a moment the sharp touch of the icicle in the heart."

Starring Oliver Ford Davies (Game of ThronesStar Wars) as Graeme Greene and Stephen Boxer (The Crown) as Kim Philby. From the award-winning producers of hit online productions of Birdsong, and Apollo 13: The Dark Side of the Moon and stage productions including the five-star revival of Alan Bennett's The Habit of Art.
