Political Satire: The Best Man by Gore Vidal

The Best Man by Gore Vidal is a political satire set at a fictional 1960 Presidential nominating convention in Philadelphia complete with backroom deal-making, the corrupting influence of television cameras, backstabbing battles for delegates, and endorsements. Joseph Cantwell, the ambitious Populist senator will use any means to get the nomination, while Secretary of State William Russell, the Liberal intellectual struggles to maintain his principles. Each battling for the endorsement of the outgoing president, who enjoys playing one against the other – you will get to cast your vote at intermission!

“Well-crafted and witty with surprises, reversals, pungent character sketches, satire, worldly wisdom and juicy roles for all concerned.” —NY Magazine

“Vidal’s story is a corker! Suspenseful, funny, surprisingly fresh!” —Associated Press.
