A shocking assassination in the heart of London. In a bizarre mix of high-stakes global politics and radioactive villainy, a man pays with his life.

On the cusp of unnerving global crises and rumblings of a new Cold War, Prebble detonates the subterfuge in the shadowy world of international espionage from Moscow to Mayfair.

Lucy Prebble (Enron, The Effect) brings a shocking story to the stage, adapted from the book by Luke Harding, with an astute mix of real events, vaudeville and thriller. Lucy is Co-Executive Producer and writer on the BAFTA, GOLDEN GLOBE and EMMY award winning HBO drama SUCCESSION, for which she has also won a WGA Award.
