  • 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.

    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!
