The political drama Patriots comes to the Noel Coward Theatre, exploring Berezovsky's life
Noel Coward Theatre, London
From the acclaimed creator of Netflix’s The Crown comes the West End’s most hotly‑anticipated and scorchingly-relevant critical hit play in years – Patriots. “If the politicians cannot save Russia, then we businessmen must. We have not just the responsibility but the duty to become Russian heroes”
It is 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.
