By 1972 Richard Nixon had ended the Vietnam war, achieved diplomatic breakthroughs with Russia and China, presided over a period of economic stability at home, and was on the verge of a landslide re-election . . . until he decided to cover up a third-rate burglary. Watergate was one of the largest scandals in American history and two years later Nixon would resign the presidency―but with neither an admission of guilt nor any sign of remorse.

In a drama "as thought-provoking as it is gripping and entertaining" (Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph), acclaimed screenwriter Peter Morgan examines how a British playboy, talk-show host managed what no other journalist or prosecutor could: to extract a confession from our most notorious statesman.

About the Author:

Peter Morgan has collaborated with Stephen Frears on The Deal and The Queen. He has written for numerous other screenplays including, for television, Mickey Love, The Jury and Longford; and, for film, Martha―Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence, The Last King of Scotland and The Other Boleyn Girl. He lives between London and Vienna with his wife and four children. Frost/Nixon is his first stage play.

Review:

"Morgan has carved a niche for himself by getting personal with power, creating smart entertainment by exploring the vulnerable human characters behind public figures. His first stage play turns the potentially dry docudrama of a disgraced former president's unexpected public apology into lively sociopolitical reflection." ―Variety
