Win a double pass to Red Joan, plus the bookby The Listener
Inspired by true events, and starring Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench, Red Joan is based on the book of the same name.
The year is 2000 and Joan Stanley is living in contented retirement in suburbia at the turn of the millennium. Her tranquil life is suddenly disrupted when she's arrested by MI5 and accused of providing intelligence to Communist Russia.
Cut to 1938, when Joan is a Cambridge physics student who falls for a young communist and begins to see the world in a new light.
Working at a top-secret nuclear research facility during World War II, Joan comes to the realisation that the planet is on the brink of destruction. Confronted with an impossible question – what prize would you pay for peace?
