The Best Man
Martin Shaw stars in the West End premiere of Gore Vidal’s thrilling political drama The Best Man, playing a strictly limited engagement at the Playhouse Theatre. Directed by Simon Evans, the play follows two US presidential candidates as they fight to win a place in the White House. But where does compromise end and corruption begin? As an ambitious newcomer and esteemed ex-Secretary of State battle head-to-head to reach their goal, their only to hope is to receive an endorsement from the current President and party big-wigs. Who will do it? West End veteran Martin Shaw stars opposite Jeff Fahey, with a stellar cast including Maureen Lipman, Jack Shepherd, Glynis Barber and Honeysuckle Weeks. At a time when American politics are fiercely debated, The Best Man should not be missed. After a hugely successful UK tour, the acclaimed production plays a strictly limited run at the London venue, with performances booking until May 2018.
