The Times on Frost/Nixon

Regional Première

‘To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. I have never been a quitter.’

In 1974 Richard Nixon became the only US President in history to resign from office, immersed in one of the biggest scandals in American political history: Watergate.

For David Frost, international socialite and well-known chat show host, an access all areas interview with a fallen President is the career-defining opportunity of a lifetime.

Nixon seeks absolution, Frost is pushing for confession. Both want to control the story, only one can emerge the victor.

A captivating dramatization of the post-Watergate TV interviews, Kate Hewitt (Tribes) directs this landmark play in the first British production since its award-winning 2006 debut.
