  • John Crowley (Brooklyn, The Goldfinch) directs Lucy Pebble's (The EffectENRON) re-imagining of Luke Harding's A Very Expensive Poison, a jaw-dropping exposé of the events behind the notorious death of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko at The Old Vic.

    Casting has now been revealed and includes Tom Brooke (The Bodyguard), MyAnna Buring (Strangers on a Train, West End), Reece Shearsmith (League of Gentlemen) and Peter Polycarpou (Birds of a Feather).

    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.

    At The Old Vic from 19 August to 28 September 2019, book your A Very Expensive Poison tickets today!
