Ooh, The Best Man, sounds like a show about a wedding! It does! But it’s not that at all. Sorry. It’s actually about party politics. Well, it’s about two finalists racing towards the prize of the presidential nomination. And the final obstacle in their way is the endorsement from a popular ex-President. Who can come out The Best Man without corrupting themselves in the process? Clever title, eh! Lots of subtext and meaning.

I get it, very clever! Sounds pretty topical? It is, but it was actually written back in 1960 by Gore Vidal. That’s the magic of great theatre, it remains applicable for years in the future. It was nominated for six Tony nominations back then, was revived notably twice (2001 and 2012) and nominated for awards then too. But it only came to the UK to tour for the first time last year and after touring will be at the Playhouse Theatre for just 12 weeks.

Not long to catch it then! Not at all. This version is directed by Simon Evans and stars Martin Shaw (last seen on the West End in Twelve Angry Men at the Garrick Theatre), Jeff Fahey, Olivier award winner Maureen Lipman, Jack Shepherd, Honeysuckle Weeks and Glynis Barber. A pretty stellar cast, even with further members to be announced!
