Book Description

17 Aug 2006 Faber and Faber Plays

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 unleashed 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?

Frost/Nixon premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in August 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frosty and Tricky 18 Jun 2007
By David Robson - Published on
I've yet to see Peter Morgan's "The Queen," but based on his new play "Frost/Nixon" it's clear that Morgan is a very skillful dramatist. "F/N" is fluid, intriguing, and a quick read. The "battle" between the two main characters is what the media hype has been focused on, but just as interesting is the build up: Frost (aptly named) is the master of cool; Nixon, we know, sweats and stammers but does his best to remain presidential.

The play is narrated by two characters, one a Frost adviser, one a Nixon chief of staff. The plot, therefore, zings along, much like a political thriller, as we wait for the main event: the infamous TV interviews. Each man has something at stake; each is hard-nosed and egotistical.

"F/N" has a screenplay quality to it. Some will accuse it of being more like film than like theatre. But, in the end, it entertains and makes you think about stardom, dishonor, and the cult of personality that TV has wrought. In "F/N", we see the birth of infotainment, before it had a name.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Version 8 Mar 2013

Read this as a script for a show which is being rehearsed. Differences from Dramatist's Play Service version are small but significant, making the Faber & Faber version the basis for a more powerful and smoother presentation.
4.0 out of 5 stars Frost/Nixon Blues 4 Jan 2013
By Glo - Published on
It was a very sad play. The playwright was able to make you feel for Nixon all while you are waiting for that moment when he get's his in the end. The rivalry is funny, funny in the sense that this young man took on this seasoned republican and thinks he forced history. When in fact, based on the play, Nixon sorta, kinda wanted him to bring the entire thing to closure.

You want him/Nixon to get his, and then, he does something human, like, act like a mentor. You sit in anticipation in ways you never thought you would reading such a play. Yes, it has it's thrilling moments. The only thing I wasn't too appreciative of was the double dealing on stage, often, I didn't get what was hapenning and had to try and figure it out or ask somone. I never liked that type of double acting on stage anyway, confuses me or takes me away from the plot and what I've been following, because I'm trying to figure out what the actors are doing and why the playwright thought this would work; what is he trying to say or convey with this.

It was a good read though and I look forward to reading more plays where two famous people meet and hash it out on stage.
