Single Spies


Alan Bennett

2nd - 9th April 2022

Alan Bennett’s Olivier Award winning comedy masterpiece uncovers the true stories behind two notorious spies.

Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt were members of the infamous Cambridge Spies. This compelling double bill, set in both Moscow and London, chronicles their extraordinary lives: secret identities, police interrogations, and encounters with the Queen.

In An Englishman Abroad, double agent Guy Burgess has defected to the Soviets and is living in Moscow. But when he’s visited by the actress Coral Browne, Burgess entrusts her with a top secret mission of her own.

As A Question of Attribution shows, there was nobody Sir Anthony Blunt didn’t know. As Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures, he was on friendly terms with Her Majesty. But with an art forgery on his hands and a policeman in his office, Blunt’s latest trip to Buckingham Palace is looking awkward…

These witty comedies are as fascinating as they are funny.
