David Harewood (Homeland) and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) play feuding political rivals in James Graham's (Sherwood) multiple award-winning new drama.

In 1968 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 unruly liberal Gore Vidal.

During a new nightly television format, they debate the moral landscape of a shattered nation. As beliefs are challenged and slurs slung, a new frontier in American politics is opening and television news is about to be transformed forever.

Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons) directs this blistering political thriller, filmed live in London's West End.

Fleabag (15)

written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Directed by Vicky Jones. 

Running time: Approx. 67 minutes
Available: Between 15 June - 14 September 2023
Price: £4.50 per student (min 45 students) or flat £198 for smaller groups. Free for staff (1:10 ratio).

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Following a box-office record-breaking run in cinemas in 2019, the one-woman show returns to cinemas to the big screen this summer.  

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. 

The hilarious, award-winning play that inspired the BBC's hit TV series Fleabag, was captured live on stage from London's West End in 2019. 

Presented by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre.
