See it if you love James graham's writing
Don't see it if if you want something hard hitting
"I really can’t fault Herrin’s bold, pacy production, or the canniness and flair of Graham’s writing here. Bravo."
"If there’s a failing, it’s that almost too much research gets stuffed in, the action channel-surfing between pop-up primers, archive footage, cameos, angsty strategising and more."
"Both actors are restricted by the highly stylised roles they play, but they never become impersonations."
" 'Best of Enemies' isn’t just a treat for political geeks: it’s a compelling human drama, as wild and unruly as the decade it brings so passionately to life."
"It's a finely-etched portrayal in a play that is full of brilliant insight. It's also essentially theatrical...That makes me want to punch the air."
"I was transfixed by this play 11 months ago in its smaller, cosier Off West End setting, as I was again the other night, notwithstanding a disconcerting broadness to some of the supporting performances and a level of amplification new to me in a non-musical."
"Zachary Quinto is a superb addition to this fiery, thought-provoking political drama."
"Graham makes it feel recent by showing that this is the time when personality and politics became inextricably intertwined, and hinting towards the limits of charisma and ego when it comes to actually governing a country."
