This daring, moving and often hilarious musical delves into the lives of men and women who have failed - or succeeded - in assassinating the President of the United States. 

From Samuel Byck (who attempted to kill Nixon with a hijacked plane) and Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme (who tried to assassinate Ford), to John Wilkes Booth (who shot Lincoln) and Lee Harvey Oswald (arrested for Kennedy's murder)... did each assassin's act of violence bring about the desired result? 

'I remember where I was, Just exactly where I was, in the yard out back "The President's been shot"
.....something just broke... "The President's been shot!" My God!'

This production contains themes of an adult nature.

Presented in association with Josef Weinberger.

Tickets: £7.00 (£5.00 concs and groups), £2.50 students
