In 1974, Richard M. Nixon resigned as President of the United States to hide the truth about Watergate. One month later, new president Gerald Ford granted Nixon a full pardon for any crimes he may have committed while in office - he would never have to answer for his actions.

In 1977, British talk show host David Frost took on the task of asking the questions the world wanted to ask - of trying to get the apology Nixon had never given.

​The premiere of the Nixon interviews captured a TV audience of 45 million people - a record which still stands today. By the end of the interviews, one man would be redeemed while the other would face the bitter taste of obscurity.

The story is a dramatised snapshot of history, while exploring very modern ideas of political survival, personal responsibility and the power of the media.

Point Blank Productions are pleased to be bringing this outstanding play to Auckland audiences.
