Guy Henry plays the famous Russian writer Ivan Turgenev opposite Stephen Dillane as radical revolutionary, Alexander Herzen, in Salvage, part three of Tom Stoppard's trilogy, The Coast of Utopia.

The Coast of Utopia is based on the life of Alexander Herzen, founder of the Free Russian Press and the first self-proclaimed socialist in history. In three plays – Voyage, Shipwreck and Salvage — the Olivier Award-winning playwright examines issues of love, politics and betrayal against the backdrop of mid-19th century Russia and Europe.
