‘It had me on the edge of my seat’
The Mail on Sunday

‘A cracking, exciting piece of theatre’

Evening Standard

“If the politicians cannot save Russia, then we businessmen must. We have not just the responsibility but the duty to become Russian heroes”

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.

See the “dazzling” (Daily Mail), “thrilling” (Evening Standard), and “lusciously livewire” (The Telegraph) new play from writer Peter Morgan (Netflix’s The Crown, Frost/Nixon) and Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink, Albion) – a brilliant and startlingly timely story of ambition, loyalty and betrayal in a brave new world.

BAFTA-winning Tom Hollander (The Night Manager, Travesties) reprises his role as Berezovsky, the ‘kingmaker’ behind Vladimir Putin, with Will Keen (His Dark Materials) also returning to play Putin, and Luke Thallon (Albion) as Abramovich.

‘A new drama whose look at power and politics in Russia over the last quarter-century induces a shiver at despotism’s rise’
The New York Times

‘Gripping, delivered with cracking brio, Rupert Goold’s fast-paced production’
Financial Times
