Frost/Nixon

Richard Nixon was one of the most successful American Presidents ever, until he decided to cover up a third-rate burglary on Democrat Headquarters, the Watergate building. He resigned, but never explained, never accepted responsibility, never apologised.

Does it matter if our politicians tell the truth? British playboy talk-show host David Frost thought he’d have a go at it anyway. This play tells a true story which is thrilling, exhilarating and hilarious, as Frost and Nixon, and their support teams, go head to head.

Written by Peter Morgan (who wrote the films The Queen, Last King of Scotland, the Netflix series The Crown and The Damned United), this play was turned into an Oscar and Bafta nominated film starring Michael Sheen.

"I'm saying that when the President does it, that means it's not illegal ".

Thursday 13 to Saturday 22 January (exc Sunday) at 7.30pm, matinee 2pm Saturday 15 Jan, social distanced performances 13 & 17 Jan.
