CLOSED at the Alden Theatre Sep 17, 2010 - Oct 2, 2010
Producer: Cathy Farnsworth , George Farnsworth
Director: Zina Bleck
Technical Director: Bill Glikbarg
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service  

A play by the British screenwriter and dramatist Peter Morgan. Its subject is the series of televised interviews that former US President Richard Nixon granted David Frost in 1977 and that ended with Nixon's admission of guilt regarding his role in the Watergate scandal and subsequent coverup.

See the Fairfax Times Review: riveting theater ... utterly fascinating, like watching a mongoose (Frost) with a cobra (Nixon)
And Rich Massabny's Review: Bob Sams is perfectly cast in the role of Richard Nixon and is riveting in his portrayal.
Jesse Baskin ... gave a commanding performance -- Showbiz Radio

James Reston, Jr, who was part of David Frost's team at the time, presented a talk on September 19. See his article about the events and the play.
