The Spy Who Came In From The Cold

Author(s): John le Carré, adapted for the stage by David Eldridge Company: Chichester Festival Theatre

All cats are alike in the dark.

At the height of the Cold War, disillusioned British spy Alec Leamas is persuaded by the head of The Circus and veteran agent George Smiley to stay ‘in the cold’ for one last risky operation against the powerful leader of the East German Secret Service.

But Leamas has committed a cardinal error: he’s fallen in love. After a lifetime of deception and betrayal, can there be room for humanity in the ruthlessly manipulative world of international espionage?
