James Graham's Best of Enemies comes to The Young Vic

Best of Enemies, written by James Graham and directed by Jeremy Herrin, has opened at the Young Vic.

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...

The show features Justina Kehinde and will run until Saturday 22nd January. Tickets can be purchased here.
