I heard this play was great. It centers around an interview between British talk-show host David Frost and Richard Nixon right after Nixon’s resignation.

“In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out-talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president’s legacy. ”
