Donkey Heart, a sensational new play from an Olivier Award-winning team comes to the West End.

Moscow, now. A small flat. One family, three generations, the same hangover. Life after communism is utterly different yet somehow eerily familiar. Petya’s dodging the draft, Sasha’s jumping with every ring of the bell, Ivan’s brought a mysterious stranger home, and now their guest Thomas is asking questions.

Who do you trust? The state may not be spying on you, but can you say the same for your nearest and dearest?
