Two opposing presidential party candidates are neck and neck in an unscrupulous battle for the nomination.

Review this show


The only thing that separates the ex-Secretary of State and his populist opponent is an endorsement from a respected ex-President. But where does compromise end and corruption begin? And who in the end will be proved to be ‘the best man’?

One of the UK’s best loved actors, Martin Shaw leads a star-studded cast. Best known for his TV roles in Judge John Deed, Inspector George Gently and The Professionals, he returns to the stage after his West End triumphs which include An Ideal Husband, Twelve Angry Men, Are You Lonesome Tonight? and A Man for All Seasons. Jeff Fahey, American movie star whose films include The Lawnmower Man and TV series Lost co-stars alongside one of Britain’s finest and best loved film, TV and theatre actresses Maureen Lipman (CBE). Best known on the big screen for roles such as Trish in Educating Rita and in the Oscar-winning film The Pianist. A prolific stage actress, Lipman is an Olivier Award winner (See How They Run) and has appeared in some 20 West End productions.

Joining them is Jack Shepherd, whose extensive career includes his celebrated roles in Wycliffe and Bill Brand; Honeysuckle Weeks who starred alongside Michael Kitchen as Samantha Stewart in Foyle’s War and Glynis Barber, best known for Dempsey and Makepeace, Night and Day and EastEnders.
