Ad




A shocking assassination in the heart of London. In a bizarre mix of high-stakes global politics and radioactive villainy, a man pays with his life.


At this time of global crises and a looming new Cold War, A Very Expensive Poison sends us careering through the shadowy world of international espionage from Moscow to Mayfair.


John Crowley (Brooklyn, The Goldfinch) directs Lucy Prebble’s (The Effect, ENRON) reimagining of Luke Harding’s jaw-dropping exposé of the events behind the notorious death of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.


★★★★★ ‘Truly theatrical. Swivels brilliantly between tragedy and farce.’ The Observer


★★★★★ ‘Stunningly political and superbly theatrical.’ The Stage


★★★★ ‘A surprising, theatrical, watchable night ends with a whack of seriousness.’ The Sunday Times


★★★★ ‘Funny and frequently exhilarating piece of theatre.’ Time Out


★★★★ ‘As tender as it is clever, as incensed as it is inventive. It’s a wonderful one-off.’ The Times


★★★★ ‘A uniquely theatrical spectacle.’ The Guardian


★★★★ ‘A brilliantly bold and ferociously intelligent drama about our slippery times.’ Financial Times


★★★★ ‘A rare breed of play, one of the highlights of the year so far.’ City AM
