Attend in person
Set during the fifth congress of the Russian Communist Party, Stephen May’s Sell Us the Rope follows a young Stalin as he navigates early 20th century London. With Lenin, Trotsky and Rosa Luxembourg, he attempts to cement the radicalism of the party while falling into a relationship that can only bring him trouble. A master of historical fiction transports us to a London, and a leader, we have never truly known. He appears in conversation with writer, journalist and comedian Viv Groskop today.
