A Splinter Of Ice

June 8th - June 12th

 

The Original Theatre Company presents
A SPLINTER OF ICE
by Ben Brown
Directed by Alan Strachan with Alastair Whatley

Starring Oliver Ford Davies and Stephen Boxer

“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 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, Russian memoir writer and Kim’s last 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.

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

Starring Oliver Ford Davies (Game of Thrones, Star Wars) as Graham Greene, 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.
