Whilst touring Hamlet in Moscow with the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in 1958, Coral Browne is astonished to have Guy Burgess appear in her dressing room. Having disappeared from England in 1951 together with fellow diplomat Donald Maclean, spy Burgess is a wanted man.

Bennett's take on the encounter is both poignant and comic, and the play examines his life in exile, his love of England and his even greater love of Russia. This full-cast dramatisation was originally broadcast on BBC World Service.
