About This Show

Premiered at the Barbican just after Margaret Thatcher’s re-election in 1983, the play is an epic study of political commitment and betrayal between the 40s and the 80s. Interweaving the stories of a British working-class communist, a student revolutionary and a Soviet army officer, all of whom – in their different ways – end up taking revenge on their youthful ideals.

Part of the RSC’s Mischief Festival
