Redtwist Theatre presents
by Peter Morgan
Directed by Scott Weinstein

Featuring Redtwist company member & Jeff Award-winner Brian Parry as Richard Nixon

“I’m saying when the President does it, that means it’s not illegal”
--Richard Nixon

Opens Saturday, April 21, 2018, at 3pm
(this is also the press opening)

Runs Thu, Fri, Sat at 7:30pm; Sun at 3pm, through Sunday, May 20

The dashing Brit playboy checkmates the disgraced president into admitting that he not only broke the law, but was still in abject denial that he did anything wrong. These watershed 1977 interviews sealed the legacy of both men, and established Nixon as a modern-day punchline for abuse of power.
