Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Fifty years after the war that brought them together, three Special Operations Executive agents meet to record interviews for a television documentary.

As Leo, Vera and John wait to be interviewed in a beautiful English garden, drinking tea and doing the crossword, pleasantries give way to deeper darker subjects.

David Morley’s heart stopping play stars national treasures David Jason, Stephanie Cole and Anton Lesser with Saffron Coomber and Lucy Doyle and is directed by Philip Franks.
