National Theatre Live Presents - Best of Enemies

18th May
7pm - 10pm

By James Graham & directed by Jeremy Herrin

Inspired by the documentary by Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon

In 1968 America, as two men fight to become the next president, all eyes are on the battle between two others: the cunningly conservative William F. Buckley Jr., and the unruly liberal Gore Vidal.

During a new nightly television format, they debate the moral landscape of a shattered nation. As beliefs are challenged and slurs slung, a new frontier in American politics is opening and television news is about to be transformed forever.

Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons) directs this blistering political thriller, filmed live in London’s West End.
