production information

This free performance is exclusively for those aged 25 and under as part of Almeida For Free.

1991. The Fall of the Soviet Union.

With the dawning of a new Russia, there are winners and losers, and today’s patriot can fast become tomorrow’s traitor.

As a new generation of oligarchs fights to seize control, Patriots follows billionaire businessman Boris Berezovsky from the president's inner circle to public enemy number one.

BAFTA-winning actor Tom Hollander (The Night Manager) plays Berezovsky, the ‘kingmaker’ behind Vladimir Putin. A new play from Peter Morgan (Netflix's The Crown) and directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Spring Awakening), Patriots is an unflinching story of ambition and the dangers of loyalty and love.

Patriots was developed in association with
SFPLogo Black No Border
