ABOUT THE SHOW
This full-length play sheds light on the unique relationship between Winston Churchill and Edward R. Murrow during the early years of WW II when England was under attack by Hitlers air-force. Murrow, who was covering the war for CBS Radio News, not only became friendly with Churchill, but had a passionate and adulterous love affair with the Prime Ministers daughter-in-law, Pamela--one of the most famous courtesans of her time.
Under the direction of Stu Berg, THEIR FINEST HOUR stars *Michael Karm, Tyler Cook, Chantelle Albers, and Beau Hogan. (*AEA)
