I wasn't truly convinced by this play having read many spy novels. The main character Justine gets her perfect job working for MI5, then has an affair with a married man. After getting a spy job, I can't believe anyone would compromise themselves like this. I couldn't totally believe it, especially the Russian angle. There is no longer a cold war, so this part of the story wasn't real for me. They would have been better picking another country as Russia was too obvious. The problem for me was that its too much of a who dunnit and didn't explore the interior motives of wanting to be a spy. There was some great scenes that added much needed tension. Overall, it was quite enjoyable but could have been better with some small adjustments.
