The world premiere of Peter Morgan‘s brand new play PATRIOTS will be coming to the Noël Coward theatre in 2023!
Winner of the Olivier award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Will Keen)
“If the politicians cannot save Russia, then we businessmen must. We have not just the responsibility but the duty to become Russian heroes”
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.
See the ‘dazzling’ (Daily Mail), ‘thrilling’ (Evening Standard), and ‘lusciously livewire’ (Daily Telegraph) new play from writer Peter Morgan (Netflix’s The Crown, Frost/Nixon) and director Rupert Goold (Ink, ENRON) – a brilliant and startlingly timely story of ambition, loyalty and betrayal in a brave new world.
BAFTA-winning actor Tom Hollander (Travesties, The Night Manager) will reprise his starring role as Berezovsky, the ‘kingmaker’ behind Vladimir Putin, with Will Keen (His Dark Materials) also returning to play Putin, and Luke Thallon as Abramovich. Joining them from the original Almeida cast are Matt Concannon, Ronald Guttman, Sean Kingsley, Paul Kynman and Jessica Temple. Further casting will be announced in due course.

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.
Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky was, as deputy secretary of Russia’s security council, one of the most powerful men in Russia. He was in President Boris Yeltsin’s inner circle, controlled the media, and made billions importing and exporting cars. But everything changed when Vladimir Putin took over as President, and Berezovsky went from being a person of power to public enemy number one.
