Michaelmas Week 4
1977. Richard Nixon has received a full pardon from Gerald Ford and will never face trial for his involvement in the Watergate affair. In an effort to recuperate some of his reputation, he agrees to an exclusive television interview with British talk-show host David Frost. Twelve interviews, no scripts, and no prior knowledge of the questions. It’s more than just a battle of wits between journalist and politician, it’s a struggle between the flamboyant and eccentric world of showbiz and television, and the sombre, tight-lipped political organisation. With time running out, Frost finds himself faced with the greatest challenge of his career: how to make a politician crumble.
This award winning show will be brought to the ADC stage this Michaelmas in a new quick, slick, ensemble based production.
