Acclaimed writer Tom Stoppard and Director Howard Davies bring the suspicion-clad tension of Cold War espionage to the Hampstead Theatre, starring Lisa Dillon as Hapgood.
It is London, 1988, and international relations are beginning to thaw as the Cold War begins to deescalate. Balancing the demands of motherhood and a career as British spymaster is Elizabeth Hapgood, whose network is leaking secrets.
But attempting to locate the source only leads to more mistrust, as the identity and affiliations of her agents are called into question. With Hapgood’s familial and professional lives on course to collide, she finds herself at the heart of a personal betrayal.
Expect to be kept second guessing as Tom Stoppard’s tale twists, turns and thrills.
