THE BEST MAN October 3 – 28, 2011
by Gore Vidal
This Tony Award winning play examines the two front runners for their party’s presidential nomination. Ex-Secretary of State William Russell is a wit and a scholar with high principles but no integrity in the bedroom. Joseph Cantwell is a ruthless and hard-driving young man, a dirty fighter who will let no scruples stand in the way of his ambitions. Both vie for the support of ex-President Art Hockstader, a man who loves politics for its own sake, admires a rough-and-tumble battle more than a chivalrous one, and is determined to have the final say in selecting his party’s candidate.
