The Vertical HourIn David Hare's drama, The Vertical Hour, a former war reporter, Nadia Blye, knows exactly her opinion about Iraq. She meets an equally opinionated man, who happens to be her boyfriend's father, and his musings have far-reaching consequences. Nigel Douglas returns to the theatre for the first time in 10 years after working in TV on shows including This Life and Clocking Off to direct. The Vertical Hour first debuted in 2006 on Broadway, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Julianne Moore and Bill Nighy, when Michael Billington described the play as, "richly stimulating stuff: a reminder that one of the pleasures of sitting in a theatre lies in encountering a civilised mind". This revival at the Park Theatre in Finsbury Park is the first in London since the play was staged at the Royal Court Theatre in 2008.
