BWW TV: Martin Shaw, Maureen Lipman & Cast Talk THE BEST MAN

Gore Vidal's political drama THE BEST MAN is enjoying its belated West End debut, with a press night tonight at London's Playhouse Theatre. Watch the cast discuss the play in our video interview below!

Martin Shaw is William Russell, esteemed ex-Secretary of State and US presidential candidate, with something of a philandering reputation. Jeff Fahey is Joseph Cantwell, an ambitious populist newcomer, opposing Russell for the party nomination.

Running neck and neck, the only thing that might separate the candidates are endorsements from a respected Ex-President (Jack Shepherd) and party big-wig (Maureen Lipman). As the race heats up the campaign gets personal, involving Russell's estranged wife Alice (Glynis Barber) and Cantwell's wife Mabel (Honeysuckle Weeks).

But where does compromise end and corruption begin? How far will they each go to become the most powerful man in the world? And who in the end will be proven to be "the best man"?
