London 1988. The Cold War is approaching its endgame and somebody in spymaster Elizabeth Hapgood’s network is leaking secrets. Is her star Double Agent a Triple? The trap she sets becomes a hall of mirrors in which betrayal is personal and treachery a trick of the light.

Tom Stoppard’s many plays include The Hard Problem, The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia, The Real Thing and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Screenplays include Shakespeare in Love, Anna Karenina and Enigma.

Director Howard Davies returns to Hampstead following the critically acclaimed Drawing the Line and 55 Days. Other theatre credits include Temple (Donmar), Children of the Sun, Never So Good and The White Guard (National Theatre).
