More Information

On 9 August 1974, Richard Nixon gave a final wave to the world before flying off into ignominy and exile, leaving the crucial questions about Watergate unanswered. All the top political journalists in America wanted to ask them, but the man who got the exclusive interview was David Frost.

Frost was no journalist; he was a TV personality. Glib and charming, he could coax an anecdote out of a movie star, but getting Nixon to come clean about the cover-up was a few steps up in class. And Nixon knew it. With not an ounce of his political guile diminished, Nixon expected to come out of the encounter without a scratch and complete the first stage of his public rehabilitation.

Former MTC Artistic Director Roger Hodgman returns to direct John Adam (The Give and Take) as Frost and Marshall Napier (McLeod’s Daughters) as Nixon.
