Peter Morgan's Tony Award-nominated drama that spawned the critically acclaimed 2008 film pits British TV talk show host David Frost against disgraced former president Richard Nixon in a battle of wits and wills. Desperate to regain his reputation as a serious journalist, Frost seeks to elicit from the Watergate-plagued Nixon a detailed explanation and apology, while the ever-political former president has his own agenda. This fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the famous 1977 series of interviews dissects the electrifying battle between Nixon and Frost, revealing their insecurities, ego and sense of dignity as they face off in a historic encounter, which ultimately changes them both.

Quotes & Highlights
- "When you emerge the wiser after absorbing the play's appalling truths and brilliant writing, the production has been successful." --Philadelphia Inquirer
- "New City Stage Company has put together one of the best ensembles I’ve seen on recent Philadelphia stages. The cast members excel in each role, and the humanity and immediacy they bring to the self-absorbed, self-destructive characters give the play its power." --Stage Magazine (highly recommended)
- "Hurlyburly is crude, rude and deep, despite its main characters’ shallowness, and packs a wallop." --Philadelphia City Paper
