It is 1958, and in a squalid flat in Moscow, double-agent Guy Burgess is hiding from the world. When he is visited by actress Coral Browne, he is overjoyed to see someone from his former life in England. Starved for information, Burgess interrogates her about English society gossip and cajoles her into taking home measurements for a new pinstripe suit from his London tailor.
This is a critically-acclaimed Alan Bennett play, originally performed at the National Theatre and adapted for BBC Radio 4.
