Director: Edward Hall; Written by: Simon Gray
One of Britain's most notorious double agents, George Blake, is serving a 42-year prison sentence inside Wormwood Scrubs. But when he strikes up a friendship with petty criminal Sean Bourke he suddenly sees the possibility of escape.
But once they've made it to the outside will their mutual dependence be strong enough to survive the attention they're getting from MI5 and the KGB?
Simon Gray's play explores how personal freedom is often an illusion, and how even friendship must have its limits in a world where deception is the default response.
