Secret Honour
  • Edinburgh Fringe

'Remarkable' (Press). Sequestered in his home, disgraced President Richard Milhous Nixon arms himself with a bottle of scotch and a gun to record memoirs that no one will hear. He is surrounded by the silent portraits of his demons, as he resurrects his past in a passionate attempt to defend himself and his political legacy. Secret Honour is a searing interrogation of the Nixon mystique and an audacious depiction of unchecked paranoia. Richard Nixon is played by Steve Scott. Directed by Nigel Fairs.
