By Julian Mitchell
Either you accept the system, or you try to change it. There’s no alternative.
What would lead a man to betray his country? What would lead a boy to betray his friends? In Julian Mitchell’s award-winning play, these questions become fatally entwined.
Another Country follows a company of public schoolboys through a summer term in the early 1930s, depicting the youth of Guy Burgess – one of the infamous Cambridge spies. When a suicide rocks the school, the young men are forced to confront who they are and what they believe in. The choices they make will have a devastating impact on their lives and on the future of their country.
The premiere of this moving drama won an Olivier Award for Play of the Year and helped launch the careers of Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day-Lewis, Rupert Everett and Colin Firth. It is revived here by University of Oxford Students.
