"It will be a sort of intellectual ‘Rocky.’ ” — Peter Morgan, describing to David Frost his idea for a play about Frost’s interviews with former President Richard Nixon
Three years after the Watergate scandal ended his presidency, Richard Nixon agreed to break his silence in a series of interviews with up-and-coming British broadcaster David Frost. Behind-the-scenes it was a battle of egos for the upper hand in controlling history, but as the cameras rolled, the world was riveted by a remarkably honest exchange between one man who has lost everything and another with everything to gain.
Alexandra Tavares, Amy Thone, and Sarah Harlett lead an all-female cast in Peter Morgan's docudrama of corruption, obstruction, and blind ambition.
