Title: Berkoff as Nixon
Post by: Iain Fisher on June 17, 2020, 07:20:25 PM
Adam Donen presents and audio drama Nixon in Agony, with Steven playing Nixon.

It is described as " Donen’s Nixon in Agony, an audio drama made to be experienced digitally via stereo headphones, will enjoy its world premiere at the virtual National Arts Festival. 
The work stars stage and cinema legend Steven Berkoff as Richard Nixon, and features a Grammy award-winning production team.  It tells the story of US President Richard Nixon’s last night in the White House, descending into madness.  The audience are placed inside Nixon’s head using psychoacoustic and binaural effects, where every self-justification, every rambling excuse, and the vitriol of every critic echoes."

It will be heard at the virtual National Arts Festival in South Africa, though it is not yet on their website.
