Archives - Single Spies
by Alan Bennett
Directed by David Thompson
Saturday 17th – Saturday 24th October 1992 in the Auditorium
Single Spies, a double-bill of witty and intriguing plays, won the Olivier award for Comedy of the Year in 1988. Each play features one of the Cambridge spies — all four of whom regularly supplied information to Russia during the Second World War whilst working for the British establishment.
An Englishman Abroad is based on a true incident in the life of actress Coral Browne telling the touching story of her encounter with Guy Burgess in Moscow in 1958.
In A Question of Attribution the circumstances are imaginary. Anthony Blunt, Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures, tries to solve the riddle of an enigmatic painting and is himself the subject of an official investigation.
Part of the Barn’s 1992/1993 season
