John Mortimer's autobiographical play is the affectionate portrait of a son's relationship with his father. Growing up in the shadow of a brilliant barrister, who adored his garden and hated visitors, and whose blindness was never mentioned, the son continually yearns for his father's love and respect.

Frost/Nixon, By Peter Morgan.
Opens 15 Aug 2006, following previews from 10 Aug - running to 7 Oct 2006.
Directed by Michael Grandage, the cast includes Michael Sheen
In 1972, a break in was foiled at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. Within days a connection had been made between the thieves and the White House and to President Nixons closest aids. It unleashed one of the greatest scandals in modern American politics and ended with Nixons humiliating resignation. David Frost’s interviews with Richard Nixon drew the largest audience of a news interview ever. Could this British talk-show host, with no political convictions and a playboy reputation, be the one to elicit an apology from the man who committed one of the biggest felonies in American political history?
