A Splinter of Ice

Tuesday July 20Saturday July 24

£20.00 – £35.00

‘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 Russian memoirist and Philby’s last wife, 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.

Starring Oliver Ford Davies (Game of Thrones, Star Wars) as Graham Greene, Stephen Boxer (The Crown) as Kim Philby and Karen Ascoe as Rufa Philby.

Performance contains smoking on stage.
