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.
