"Blissfully funny and fully realized political satire!"- The New York Times

Nixon's Nixon is a speculative account of what happened when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger met on the eve of Nixon's resignation from office. A scathingly funny parody, it envisions two of the world's most influential men posing, pontificating, and plotting to preserve their place in history at any cost.

"Nixon's Nixon resurrects many of the complex emotions that are associated with our 37th president. I think this period really changed the way that people perceived government and their relationship to it. For younger audiences, the play affords them the chance to see that time cast in an extremely comedic yet bittersweet way. The issues raised by Nixon's Nixon are part of a political continuum that continues to the present day, giving it a relevance and immediacy I know you will truly enjoy." - Russell Lees, playwright
