The Good Russian is written and performed by Andrew Byron, a Russophile British actor who knows more than most about how Russians are portrayed on British screens - he has played many of them.
Andrew's credits include Killing Eve, Spooks, Jack Ryan, Silent Witness, Doctor Who, Waking the Dead and many more.
He has just been cast as another Russian in the BBC's new primetime production of Dracula.
A comedy about an honest Siberian, navigating his way through modern Britain on the hunt for acting fame.
Gossiping Babushkas crowd at the window of a wooden house in the depths of Siberia.
Inside, Innokenty Makarov is explaining to the policeman that the bookshelf must have fallen on his parents, killing them both.
The policeman is suspicious, but for Innokenty this only means one thing: freedom.
Freedom to leave a life of drudgery in Russia for acting glory in England - or so he believes.
But Innokenty soon discovers that modern-day Britain is very different from the land of his beloved Victorian novels and his past threatens to catch up with him.
This is a funny and touching story about one man's dream and his struggle to overcome the stereotypical view of his countrymen as criminals and oligarchs.
