Synopsis


Two seductions, two deaths, one apartment, sixty years apart.


Inspired by real life mysteries: David Thame's acclaimed one-act thriller Kompromat in a double bill with his tense and atmospheric new play, London/Budapest.


In London/Budapest it's 1955.


Adam de Hegedus, the secretive author of Britain's first gay bestseller The Heart in Exile, takes his afternoon sauna pick-up to a Pimlico flat.


But this is the cold war: Burgess and Maclean have just defected to the Soviet Union.


Espionage is everywhere, paranoia too.


And a casual encounter can cost you your life.


Kompromat - a hit at the Vaults Festival last year - is inspired by the 2010 death of Gareth Williams, whose body was found zipped into a sports bag in the bathroom of his Pimlico flat.


Its protagonist is brilliant with numbers, but hopeless at reading people - including the beautiful young man he has invited into his bedroom.


Spy Plays features two one act plays parted by one interval.
