OPENS THIS NOVEMBER IN LONDON'S WEST END

Following a sold-out run at the Young Vic, James Graham’s Award-Winning New Play comes to the West End this November.

“A man should never turn down two things. Sex, and appearing on television.”

1968 – A year of protest that divided America. As two men fight to become the next President, all eyes are on the battle between two others: the cunningly conservative William F Buckley Jr., and the iconoclastic liberal Gore Vidal.

Beliefs are challenged and slurs slung as these political idols feud nightly in a new television format, debating the moral landscape of a shattered nation. Little do they know they’re about to open up a new frontier in American politics, and transform television news forever…

James Graham’s celebrated new BBC drama Sherwood has just concluded its first series and recent stage successes include Quiz, Labour of Love and Ink.  Best of Enemies is directed by Jeremy Herrin (The Glass Menagerie, This House, People, Places and Things).
