The kingmakers that transformed RussiaGo behind the curtain of Russian politics as blistering new play Patriots transfers to the West End, with Tom Hollander starring as billionaire Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky.
It’s 1991, and the Soviet Union has fallen. A new Russia beckons and in the scramble for power anyone’s fortunes can change on a whim. As oligarchs fight to gain control, one figure emerges from the crowd: Boris Berezovsky. Over the next decade, this powerful kingmaker will begin as the President’s right hand man and a staunch patriot, and end as a traitor and public enemy.
The Crown creator Peter Morgan’s Patriots play premiered at the Almeida Theatre in 2022, where it earned five star reviews and thrilled audiences with its timely, edge-of-your-seat political tale. It is directed by Rupert Goold (Ink; Enron).
The Patriots West End cast includes BAFTA Award winner Tom Hollander (Travesties; The Night Manager) reprising his role as Berezovsky, Will Keen (His Dark Materials) as Putin and Luke Thallon as Abramovich.
