FROST/NIXON

Performance Dates: 27th January – 3rd February 2018

Directed by Darren Scott

In 1972, a break-in was foiled at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. Within days a connection had been made with the White House and President Nixon’s closest aides. It unleased one of the greatest scandals in modern American politics and ended with Nixon’s humiliating resignation.

David Frost’s interviews with Richard Nixon drew the largest audience ever for a news interview. Could this British talk-show host, with no known political convictions and a playboy reputation, be the one to elicit an apology from the man who committed one of the biggest felonies in American political history?

It was premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 2006, and was made into a film in 2008.

The characters are as follows. I am looking, where possible, to find actors who can look like their real-life counterparts and are of a similar age.  Convincing American accents are also a must.

Cast:

DAVID FROST – British talk-show host, International jet-setter. Restless and Energetic; Early 30s.

RICHARD NIXON - 37th President of the United States from 1969 until 1974, when he resigned from office in light of the Watergate scandal,  the only U.S. president to do so; Early 60s.

JIM RESTON – American Author and Journalist, who was part of Frost’s team. The character acts as the Narrator in this story; Early 30s

JACK BRENNAN - US Marine Corps officer and Nixon's post-resignation chief of staff. Fiercely loyal to the President; Early 40s

BOB ZELNICK – American Journalist and another of Frost’s research team; Early 40s

JOHN BIRT – Would become Director-General of the BBC, but at the time of the scandal was a young TV producer for LWT, and was persuaded by Frost to produce the interviews; Early 30s

CAROLINE CUSHING – British Socialite and Frost’s girlfriend at the time of these events; Early 30s.

There are several other characters who will be played by a small company of actors, including
MANOLO SANCHEZ (The President’s personal valet) and SWIFTY LAZAR (the famous agent to the stars).
