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; Travesties) plays Berezovsky, the ‘kingmaker’ behind Vladimir Putin. A new play from Peter Morgan (The Crown; The Audience; Frost/Nixon) and directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink; Albion; Spring Awakening), Patriots is an unflinching story of ambition and the dangers of loyalty and love.
