About this show

Nadia Blye is a glamorous American war correspondent-turned-academic who now teaches Political Studies at Yale. Haunted by memories of the Middle-East, she takes a brief holiday in Wales with her boyfriend to meet his father -- a craggy, weathered English doctor battling personal demons from his own past. Sexual and political tensions immediately surface, sparking a dynamic, life-changing debate of ethics and power. Directed by Carol Roscoe, David Hare's the Vertical Hour passionately confronts the very questions that America faces approaching the 2008 elections.
