David Harewood (Homeland) and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) play feuding political rivals in James Graham’s (Sherwood) multiple award-winning new drama.

In 1968 America, as two men fight to become the next president, all eyes are on the battle between two others: the cunningly conservative William F. Buckley Jr., and the unruly liberal Gore Vidal.

During a new nightly television format, they debate the moral landscape of a shattered nation. As beliefs are challenged and slurs slung, a new frontier in American politics is opening and television news is about to be transformed forever.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin

Bringing the best of London to the Salt Lake City screen

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. Broadcasts have now been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world. Past broadcasts from the National Theatre have included The Audience starring Helen Mirren; Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller; Man and Superman with Ralph Fiennes; Yerma starring Billie Piper, Macbeth starring Kenneth Branagh, and Follies starring Imelda Staunton.

Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre and cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.

Venues view the broadcasts ‘as live’ according to their time zone or at a later date - which is where we come in. The Tanner Humanities Center started broadcasting National Theatre Live productions in 2010 at the University of Utah's historic Post Theatre. Shortly thereafter, screenings moved to Tower Theatre before finally landing at Salt Lake Film Society's Broadway Centre Cinemas in downtown Salt Lake. Proceeds from screenings support the Tanner Humanities Center's K-12 theatre/education outreach program, helping more that 500 students throughout Utah experience the best of British Theatre as learning supplements to their arts, English, and theatre curriculae. Partner schools include, Salt Lake Arts Academy, Herriman High School, West High School, and Whittier Elementary.

K-12 Educators: if you are interested in hosting a free, private screening at the Broadway for your students, please contact us!
