Stephen Dillane stars as Alexander Herzen in Shipwreck, part two of Tom Stoppard's The Coast of Utopia. With him is Eve Best, who plays Herzen's wife, Natalie.

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.
