David Harewood and Zachary Quinto star in Best of Enemies, James Graham’s extraordinarily powerful play about political wrangling on TV in the USA during 1968, one of the most turbulent years in the nation’s history. It won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best New Theatre Production and the Critics Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play, also nominated for two Olivier Awards. Now it’s being brought to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre thanks to Second Half Productions, Eleanor Lloyd Productions, Wessex Grove, the Young Vic Theatre and Headlong. Wagner Johnson Productions is the Executive Producer.
1968 saw the USA experiencing an unprecedented year of protests. Two media giants, the conservative William F. Buckley Junior and his direct opposite, the liberal Gore Vidal, battled fiercely in parallel with the election battle for the Presidency. Beliefs were challenged and slurs exchanged as the two media stars fought night after night on TV, debating the moral landscape of a country in crisis. They had no idea they were about to change American politics and way it was represented on TV forever. Don’t miss this brilliant political drama.
