Nixon’s Nixon is a timely political meditation by Russell Lees about the night before Richard Nixon announced his resignation from the Presidency, he summoned Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to meet with him in the White House. What happened behind those closed doors will never be known, but playwright Russell Lees takes us on a journey through his own interpretation. Reflecting on political events that are strikingly similar to those faced today, Nixon’s Nixon questions whether the American Presidency is truly an office for leadership, or simply an opportunity to hold power.

Nixon's Nixon is running Sept. 14 through Oct. 6, 2019. Please visit newrep.org for more info.
