An NCPA-National Theatre Live (London) Presentation
Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in a new play by David Hare (Skylight) which is a blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.
For 40 uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by his determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, Moses created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors. Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will his charismatic conviction be enough to hide the weakness of democracy?
Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.
