A new production about ambition, political scandal, ruthlessness and the race for the White House is in Bath.

The Best Man has a stellar cast led by Martin Shaw, known for his roles in TV series The Professionals as Judge John Deed and Inspector George Gently.

It also stars Gemma Jones who has starred in Sense and Sensibility, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Spooks.

The Best Man sees a fierce battle for presidential nomination come to life on the stage as the esteemed former Secretary of State William Russell (played by Shaw) battles newcomer populist opponent Joseph Cantell, who will be played by Jeff Fahey.

But as the race heats up the campaign gets personal.

The show is on at Bath’s Theatre Royal now until Saturday, with performances at 8pm each night and one at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Tickets, priced £24.40-40.50, are available via www.theatreroyal.org.uk or by calling 01225 448844.
