Cast announced for Young Vic's Best of Enemies

The cast of the Young Vic's production of James Graham's new play, Best of Enemies, directed by Jeremy Herrin has been announced.

In a new television format, the conservative William F Buckley Jr. and liberal Gore Vidal feud nightly, debating the moral landscape of a shattered nation. Little do they know they're about to open up a new frontier in American politics, and transform television news forever...

Charles Edwards plays the iconoclastic liberal Gore Vidal and David Harewood plays the cunningly conservative William F Buckley Jr.

They are joined by Margo Cargill, Emilio Doorgasingh, Clare Foster, Tom Godwin, John Hodgkinson, Justina Kehinde, Syrus Lowe, Kevin McMonagle and Sam Otto.

The play, a co-production between the Young Vic and Headlong, has been inspired by the documentary by Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon.

There will be eight socially distanced performances across the run in addition to the four live broadcasts as part of the Young Vic's Best Seat in Your House.

Best of Enemies is Written by James Graham and Directed by Jeremy Herrin, with Set and Costume Design by Bunny Christie, Lighting Design by Paule Constable, Sound Design by Tom Gibbons, Video Design by Luke Halls, Composition by Benjamin Kwasi Burrell, Movement Direction by Shelley Maxwell, Associate Movement Direction by Sarita Piotrowski, Casting by Charlotte Sutton CDG, Voice and Dialect by Hazel Holder, Gurkiran Kaur and Salvatore Sorce, with Jerwood Assistant Director Annie Kershaw, Jerwood Assistant Designer Amy Finch and Boris Karloff Trainee Assistant Director Sabrina Richmond.

Best of Enemies is at the Young Vic from 2 Dec 2021 - 22 Jan 2022 with live streams between 20 Jan - 22 Jan with tickets available from today.
