This new Frayn play opened to terrific notices from the popular press last month: THE DAIL MAIL says, "A brilliant new play."; THE TIMES says, "I was gripped." THE GUARDIAN says, "Essential viewing." THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Superbly intricate, suspenseful, suggestive." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Richly rewarding." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, " Intelligent and grippig."

It is directed by Michael Blakemore, designed by Peter J Davison with lighting by Mark Henderson.

Set in West Germany, 1969. Willy Brandt begins his brief but remarkable career as the first left-of-centre Chancellor for nearly forty years. Always present but rarely noticed is Gunter Guillaume, Brandt's devoted personal assistant - and no less devoted in his other role, spying on Brandt for the Stasi.
