Nadia Blye knows exactly what her stance is on Iraq. A former war reporter and Professor of International Relations at Yale, she has advised the President and seen action in Sarajevo and Baghdad.
She is sure of her place in the world and her opinion of it. Until, that is, she meets an equally opinionated and lethally charming man – her boyfriend’s father – over a weekend in Shropshire. His intervention has far-reaching consequences for them all.
Award-winning Sir David Hare's gripping play pits personal philosophies against global politics. The Vertical Hour premiered on Broadway in 2006 directed by Sam Mendes, followed by its UK premiere at the Royal Court in 2008, when it became the venue's fastest selling new play ever.
Hare's best known plays include Plenty, Skylight, Racing Demon, Via Dolorosa and Stuff Happens.
