British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughingstock. Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. Determined to resurrect their career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redemption in the nation's eyes. In the television age, image is everything, and both are desperate to out-talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president's legacy.

Jalyn Green (Jack Brennan) has been seen in numerous productions at SSR and around the south sound.  He is a proud democrat that always votes for the candidate who he believes is the most respectful.  His candidate did not win in 2016 and heís been pretty unhappy with the results so far.

Additionally, he directed last yearís production of A Christmas Carol. You may have seen him at various theaters around Puget Sound including Village Theatre, Seattle Musical Theatre, ArtsWest, Theatre 22 and Harlequin Productions. When not on stage, Doug produces actor-related videos for his YouTube Channel Augmented Actor. Doug looks forward to directing SSRís 80ís rock musical, Starmites, at the end of this season. Thanks to Rick and the Squolf for this amazing opportunity.

Carissa Meisner Smit (Caroline Cushing) Although her most recent work has been as a director and/or choreographer, Carissa has trod the boards a time or two.  Favorite roles include Velma in Chicago (SecondStory Rep); Rose in Enchanted April (Adagio Players) and Thelma in Lark Eden (Edmonds Driftwood Players).  She is also one half of the musical duo Skid Rogues, appearing at a winery near you.

Danny Miller (John Birt) is very much enjoying being back on stage again, having last directed Proof a year ago. He has been seen on and off the stage here since season 4. Danny also serves on the Board of Directors and is very proud that SSR is now in its 21st season!

Patrick Kevin (Nixon) This is my 3rd production at SSR and WOW what a challenging role and a timely show!  Thanks to SSR and Rick Wright for the opportunity to work with an amazing, talented cast and the renowned Squolf production team.

Donít miss Terry in July of 2020 (better get a pencil) in Ancestral Voices at Woodinville Rep. Thanks to the crew for all their hard work.

David Bailey (Jim Reston) is thrilled to be back at SSR for his fifth show ... if you don't recognize him, you need to get to more of the 'Theater for Young Audiences' shows! This show marks his second mainstage production, last seen, past sunset, in 2017's, "A Christmas Carol", when he portrayed: a Solicitor/Marley/Fezziwig and the Ghost From Christmas Present. "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it."
