A Cold Supper Behind Harrods

Running time: 1h approx Age recommendation: 12+ years
Venue: Online / no venue Dates:

First heard on BBC Radio 4 in 2012 as a radio play, this stage production of A Cold Supper Behind Harrods reunites the original star-studded cast: Sir David Jason, Stephanie Cole OBE and Anton Lesser. They are joined by Saffron Coomber and Lucy Doyle.

Fifty years after the war that brought them together, three Special Operations Executive agents meet to record interviews for a BBC documentary: Leo Marks, genius code maker and breaker; Vera Atkins, who trained female agents and devoted herself after the war seeking information about them and fighting for their recognition; and John Harrison, who spent years in concentration camps as a prisoner of the Gestapo.

As they wait to be interviewed, in a beautiful English garden drinking tea and doing the crossword, pleasantries give way to deeper, darker subjects. A web of self-deception, lies and guilt begins to emerge.
